Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) are reaching epidemic proportions throughout the world–in families of all racial, ethnic, and social backgrounds. Autism is five times more likely to be found in boys than in girls. Autism is a devastating neurological and biological disorder that typically affects children between the ages of 18 months to five years of age.

This diagnosis is so heartbreaking to most families that parents and caregivers are desperately seeking answers. The strenuous demands of specialized care and overwhelming strain of information leave little or no time to absorb the knowledge available.

In her new book, Living autism day.by.day: Daily Reflections and Strategies to Give You Hope and Courage, Pamela Bryson-Weaver shares how she learned that her youngest son is autistic.

The past 16 years, Bryson-Weaver has worked with doctors, autism organizations, and both government and private professionals.

It will help parents identify a child with autism, guide them through the early years, and offer suggestions on how to pick the right course to take when all paths seems equally daunting.

Excerpt from Living autism day.by.day

From the Introduction

I know full well the challenges that face the caregiver of an
autistic child. For fifteen years, as the mother of an autistic son, I have navigated the waters of the autism community; finding little-known resources, communicating with parents about their special challenges, and discovering–yes!–even the blessings of autism. Now I share my findings with the millions of parents who struggle with autism via a day-by-day almanac that offers concise yet powerful entries even the busiest caregiver will appreciate. Just as each new day in the life of an autistic parent brings surprises, so Living autism day.by.day will present a fresh approach to each new day.

Each daily reading begins with a quotation, and a reflection
meant to get you interested and thinking about autism spectrum
disorders (ASDs) in a comfortable, easy manner. Following the
daily refl ections are simple actions that can help you live autism day-by-day. At the end of each reflection and action is a space to add your own notes, thoughts, ideas and results for each day.

Entries will address the world of autism from all angles, and help will come in many forms. They will include:
– practical advice
– inspiring stories and quotes
– household tips
– humorous anecdotes
– national and community resources (see also appendices)
– facts and statistics
– hope and encouragement
– educational and professional resources (see also appendices)
– strategies and tips on autistic child-care
– insights for clients, family, and friends wanting to understand autism
– treatments and research (specifically discussed in the months of November and December)
– appendices with additional resources on specified topics and to find more help

This is a book to help you feel good and assist you in the process of discovering:
– autism awareness
– self-awareness
– many of the blessings in your life!

Written with compassion and a true understanding of its readers,
Living autism day.by.day may be read in bite-size daily moments or all at one time. Either way, this book will be an indispensable resource guide for families to turn to again and again….

  • “Since my son’s officially diagnosis of Autism, life had been crazy hectic. One of the first things I did was look online for other bloggers and resources to help my family and I adjust. I was looking for some comfort and I found that last December in a book. Living Autism Day.by.Day has really be a huge blessing in my life and it’s kept me going on days when I wanted to just hang my head and cry. Pamela Bryson-Weaver did an amazing job with this book; Making it sort of a devotional for parents or people caring for someone with Autism. Pamela herself is a parent with an autistic child so reading this book made me truly feel like someone understood what I was dealing with on a daily basis.

    . . . It really comforted me on days I just wanted to cry and I’m sure it will continue to give me hope and strength throughout our journey with my son. I like that the book is set up so you can choose how you want to read it. I like to skip around and find what I need. You can read a new page each day in order. It’s really up to you how you choose to use this book as a guide. I would recommend this book to any parent with an autistic child. It’s truly inspirational. . . .”

    – Nickida Stephens, Nicki’s Random Musings   [ link ]

     

  • “The author knows of where she speaks, and as autism advocate, she knows the words and info that parents need to hear. This is a lovely book that offers information, a place to reflect and write out emotions a parent might be bottling up, or just need to express, as well as quotes to lift the soul! Her daily objectives help parents with Autism children focus on a small item and not to be overwhelmed with things that need to be done. While all of her solutions might not be applicable to everyone, they are points to ponder and options to consider. This book would make a lovely Mother’s Day present for a parent with an Autistic child, or for a parent with a recently diagnosed child. I highly recommend it!”

  • “…Sometimes we just need a reminder of what is amazing about our child. Or about us. Living Autism Day By Day is full of hope and advice on how to get through the days. It’s also a reminder of what makes our children so special. Raising an autistic child isn’t all the horrendous things that others may say it is. Our children can bring so much joy to our lives. Once you accept your child for who he or she is, and concentrate on helping your child live a life full of love and happiness, you will be amazed at the joy you will find in your life. If you are having a bad day, pick up Pamela’s book and find a quote in it that helps you get through it.”

  • “…While I do not live with autism daily, this was an interesting read. I appreciated how in-depth the author was in regards to what parents have to deal with in an honest, upfront and truthful manner. The book was easy to understand and the author talks to you as if you are a trusted friend. That being said I was very impressed with the amount of information that was shared and I can honestly say that I learned SO much from reading this that I was not aware of previous to reading. The book is definitely a resource that will offer hope and resources for anyone touched by autism. The daily reflections really make you think differently about autism and what this means to you and the people around you!”

  • “…I really like how this book is so gentle. It is just a tiny bit of reading each day. There is a spot on each page for you to write down your feeling about the topic or just the day in general. It is dated, so you could look back and know exactly where you were on each date. I think this would be a fabulous gift for a parent facing a new diagnosis. I also think that it could be a valuable gift for a child down the road, when they were older to see how their parents handled this new journey for their lives.”

A word of hope, an insightful story, gentle and kind words, sage advice from another who isn’t a doctor or therapist who sounds like someone reading from a script … someone who is just like you. A parent is the answer; a parent who is living through the same fears that you are. A parent who gets exactly what you are going through because she’s going through it too.

    Author Pamela Bryson-Weaver is that parent. Her Daily Reflections and insights are just what you, your heart, your child and family need. ”

    – Susan Heim, On Parenting   [ link ]

     

  • “…Her sage advice, wisdom, knowledge, and expertise as an advocate for autism, speaker on autism, head of non-profits, and now an author on autism, led her to want to share her knowledge and understanding of autism and its affect on families.

The book has received a great deal of praise from professionals and parenting experts.”

This book is certainly well written, containing numerous insights about life, for someone who has had to deal with the life-change of autism, or not.

When that person knows the subject that they are not only putting into words, but have already paid the price for the information being shared–you will also be enriched by what you read. HOPE: There is always a need and a source for HOPE. Pamela knows how to reach out with her words to do just that: H- helping O- other P- people E – endure. In fact, with the Lord’s guidance she does more than just help folks dealing with this heath challenge to ‘endure’ but be overcomes!”

    – Richard Karampatsos, posted at amazon.com, 5 stars

     

  • “The author delivers the most intimate truths about her life in the most genuine way. She sheds a light on the highs as well as the lows. I believe this book will not only benefit the families living directly with autism but also those on the outside; such as myself. It has helped me to have a better understanding of the inner life of autism. She has brought a guide that can be used for all to cope, understand, and learn while keeping it simplistic in terminology and personal so we can empathize with the emotions. I highly recommend this book to anyone as it has the ability to help you find hope and gratitude. Well done!”
