If you’ve ever wondered how to handle raising a child with autism, this book can be a life-saver. It’s overwhelming to try to digest the plethora of information found online everyday, but Pamela Bryson-Weaver puts all this information together in a daily guide to living autism. Although the book comes off looking like a daily reflection, when you get further into the book, you see it’s more than just that. She includes advice on how to handle meltdowns with a nonverbal child, to help your child learn socialization skills, to open your heart up to the upsides to living with autism, and, on top of all of that, it includes evidence-based interventions. The book is well put-together and truly captures every aspect of living autism form the perspective of a parent rather than a practitioner.

If you’re looking for a source of daily inspiration, this book might be the answer, but, more than that, this book aims to provide hope and courage to parents living with autism every single day. If you go to her website, livingautismnow.com, you can register to win a free first-edition copy of Living Autism Day-by-Day and get a free ebook on the 10 things you should never say to a person with autism.

“The Importance of Realizing You Are Not Alone”, this is what Pamela Bryson-Weaver hopes her book, Living Autism Day-by-Day: Daily Reflections and Strategies to Give You Hope and Courage will accomplish…  This book may be read all at once and then re-read day-by-day. The second time hopefully you will take the time to journal in your feelings as this has proven to be very therapeutic.

The entries address the world of autism and include some of the following:

  • practical advice
  • inspiring stories and quotes
  • household tips
  • humorous anecdotes
  • facts and statistics
  • hope and encouragement
  • strategies and tips on autistic child-care
  • insights for family, clients, and friends wanting to learn more about autism
  • treatments and research

This book saved my family … I don’t believe I would have have been able to do that if I hadn’t understood. Your book is a must have. If they had a first aid book bag this be the first book. I impressed a few people that day. Even my self.

Brenda Lee Ramsay

If you’ve ever had questions about ASD’s or want to know how to help a friend, family or loved struggling with an autism spectrum disorder, this is THE resource that makes it simple and easy to navigate. Pamela gives clear advice and words of hope along with resources that will help you offer your families a balanced and loving life despite the diagnoses of ASD!

Laura Berger

From the initial view of the cover, I quickly understood that this was a book which would demonstrate ways to put life back together and make life more solid. This book is certainly well written, containing numerous insights about life, for someone who has had to deal with the life-change of autism, and not. What a wonderful resource that people who deal with autism can turn to for inspiration and help toward the future.

I do know of life-change, after getting hit by a truck and laying in a coma for 37 days. Then, after awakening, having to learn to everything physical again (although, if my mind I know what to do, I had to retrain my body.) Then, 18 years later, getting hit by a truck, the second time, much of my body broken. In a large way, autism and brain injury are similar, so I see that this is a much needed book, even if you have not had to deal with either of these two areas.

Thank you Pamela, for bringing to us these words of hope. Many can learn from this wonderful book about making change work for us.

Pamela Bryson-Weaver tells a heartfelt story that can help anyone cope and thrive who has an autistic child. I like how she weaves her story, struggle, and success in a creative way. The daily reflections are powerful. Living autism day.by.day is an enlightened way to look at family harmony, health and happiness when given a diagnosis of ASD. Her book delivers powerful information in a simple and easy to format.

Not just truly inspiring, but an indispensable resource for parents of challenging children. Worth many more times the cover price.

Cindy Teevens. author of "The Alchemy of Love and Joy

Critical insight for every parent who has a child or relative with Autism. It took the love of a mother to dig so deep where the medical world just could not… This book can save any parent from disastrous and regretful mistakes with their children. No doubt, a must read!

Amazon Customer

This is an amazing book that gives encouragement every day to the care giver of a child with autism. It is written by a mother of an autistic child that is now grown and still living at home. She tells her story and the ways she coped in order to give someone else that is now in her shoes hope and a future of love.

Julia Pavlicek (Chicago)

This is a great book for anyone close to autistic children. As a former teacher, it would have been very helpful. It offers coping strategies and is also very educational, providing the reader with complete resources. Pamela’s love for her son with autism, helps guide you and makes this book genuine. “Living Autism Day.by.Day” is a must read for parents, teachers, workers, or friends of autistic children.

Michael Malkush, Bestselling author, motivational speaker, transition coach and mentor

I love the daily reflections that Pamela Bryson-Weaver has created in her intimate book that has been created for parents of autistic children. You can sense the love she has for both parents and children. You quickly learn that her son is autistic and that she is actively involved in supporting parents with both resources and inspiration. If you want a friend … a guide … someone who has walked in your shoes, Pamela and Living Autism Day by Day is there for you.

I think the information in this book addresses the “feeling” side of having a child with ASD. It is good to reflect on what is available and how to handle a problem that someone has had direct experience. It can help raise questions and provide answers to reduce a parent’s anxiety. It is written as daily inspirational advice and so the book can be easily read over a period of time. A nice alternative for busy families. I am the author of the My Baby Compass series and I would have recommended this book had it been published before my publications were finished.

Richard Karampatsos , Author of Heading Toward the Final Finish Line and Running on the Living Edge

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!

M. Brooks

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 received this for review – all opinions are my own*

Dad of Divas (www. dadofdivas.com)

When I received Pamela Bryson-Weaver’s Living Autism day-by-day, I knew that it would be of interest to several moms that I know.

It begins with an informational intro, then transitions into a journal of sorts. Each day has a story, quote, and /or info, and has a space for notes or reflections. It’s a great hybrid of clinical information and lovely thoughts and quotes. I thought it would be a great resource and personal notebook for the parent of an ASD child.

I gave the book to a friend and asked for her review, as someone who is very knowledgeable on the subject and truly is living autism day-by-day. Below are her thoughts:

“I appreciate Mrs Bryson-Weaver’s positive breath of fresh air on a variety of topics that are very difficult for most parents of an ASD child. Daily she provides a famous inspirational quote, a topic to revel over, and a small daily objective to strive for. She covers advocating for the ASD child as well as advocating for yourself to find the answers you seek, the support you need, and acceptance of your child for who they are.

Her knowledge and suggestions are current in terms of biomedical and dietary treatment approaches. I’m not so sure that all of her ideas are reasonable though. As a mother myself of a child with an ASD, I was quite surprised to find her “home schooling” suggestion.

On a whole, the book is a must read for parents of a newly diagnosed child!!”


My kids were so excited seeing their faces in the book and truly, the book is a beautiful honoring of those with autism as well as parents on that journey to support their little ones…. 

I’ve gotten my son to show it to his Autism school, Pathlight School, the only dedicated-autism school in Singapore and they are interested to get copies of this to either sell or have in their library – am waiting for them to tell me what they intend to do – but so many teachers and the vice-principal has already seen the book and everyone’s so taken in by the book! So honouring you and the gift of your book to the world! Thank you once again for the heart you have for autism and for the little ones you hold dearly. 

Will reconnect soon once I hear back from the school on what they would like to do… cheers and divine blessings for you always! 


Thank you so much for the advance copy of your book! The book is fabulous, and I highly recommend it! The website is also fabulous, and will continue to be a wonderful resource, I look forward to seeing it continue to grow and evolve! 

You are such a wonderful mother and such an inspiration! Keep up the amazing work and know that you are making such a difference in this world! God Bless!

Kimberly Arsenault

A good book, very insightful! You are a wonderful mother to John and I have seen first-hand what a blessing you are in his life.

Fr. Jack Dolan

I had such a crazy thing happen to me this morning that I just had to share it with you.

I went into work today, which was not required, to participate in a new student orientation program.  I was unsure where I was suppose to go, so I walked into a classroom where 2 of my co-workers were talking.  I had several rooms that I could chose from, but randomly picked the one I did.  As I walked in they were in a deep conversation so I just stood back for awhile to let them finish.  To my amazement the conversation was about the son of one of them who is currently in the process of being diagnosed as autistic.  I couldn’t believe it.  Her son is 4 years old and they are in the run around stage of trying to diagnose her son.  I immediately shared your information with her.  She was very excited to have another resource and I am sure she will be checking out your website.  I sensed she was feeling the frustration of trying to find out what is happening with her son.  It sounded like some intense testing is coming up soon.

It was so crazy that I just had to share this.  I had no idea she was dealing with this with her son.  Again, I think the stars must be in line.  It felt so good to me to be able to share your information with her.


Thank you for the book, Tyler and myself love it and all our extended family are very impressed. Can they get this book at Chapters? 🙂
