"This was such an amazing book. The author touched on all my personal feelings when it comes to my son and autism. After reading this book my spirits were lifted." M. Pollard
"A beautiful awe inspiring book about one mother's journey through the mire of autism - a mother that happens to also be a doctor. I haven't finished this yet, not because I can't, because the writing is so deliciously good that I don't want the journey to end." J. O'B
"Dr. Libutti's clear, concise, and wise approach will shed light and hope on so many lives. If you know or love someone on the Spectrum, read this book first. It is a game changer, guaranteed to shift the way you think about Autism for good." K. Horton
My Book: Awakened by Autism (Hay House, April 2015)
This is my journey from diagnosis to research to understanding to acceptance. It is a testament to the hope and beauty these children bring to the world, albeit in a seemingly tragic package. I suffered for years until the light of understanding forced its way into my consciousness. It is my intention to greatly abbreviate this process for other parents and professionals. By distilling down the information I gathered in my years of researching autism and treating children in my private practice, I hope to provide a foundation for understanding these brilliant children from a new perspective and providing guidance to begin the healing journey.
