George and Sam: Two Boys, One Family, and Autism. This is true story of a mom in England with 3 sons- her oldest 2 living with autism. Charlotte Moore has three children, George, Sam, and Jake. George and Sam are autistic. “George and Sam” takes the reader from the births of each of the two boys, along the painstaking path to diagnosis, interventions, schooling and more. She writes powerfully about her family and her sons, and allows readers to see the boys behind the label of autism. Their often puzzling behavior, unusual food aversions, and the different ways that autism effects George and Sam lend deeper insight into this confounding disorder.
My sister-in-law was over on the weekend and she reading this book poolside. She mentioned how much she is enjoying it and I should give it a try. She was enjoying it because it gave a different perspective on child development and how children develop and how they all do it differently. She thought I might like it because it emphasized the different ways children learned and how to use that information.
I am passing along and have this on hold at library :-)
