As a baby, Sean Barron seemed almost normal. Though he cried incessantly and hated being held, his parents told themselves it was just a phase. But as he grew older, his behavior became increasingly strange and uncontrollable, and the truth became all too clear: something was very, very wrong. When Judy Barron and her husband Ron sought professional help, they were brusquely told that their son suffered from an incurable condition that would only get worse with time.

Read this book years ago borrowed from a local library. My oldest child had a slight learning difficulty and while reading this story written simultaneously from mother and son's prospective it was a light bulb moment for me. Was as tho' I was reading about my son and I. This is a very helpful book if you have any doubts of your own child's abilities. My son's in-laws have a child with undiagnosed challenges so I suggested this book for their family to read to see if any of these examples are similar to their child''s.
This is an exciting book to read and does have a happy ending and gives hope for other families going through this.

I am the parent of 3 young children who have varying degrees of being on the autistic spectrum. This book has given me hope and filled me with a totally new perspective on how my children might be feeling and thinking. The book is quite unique, seeing as how it has the vantage points of both Sean and his Mom. I especially appreciated the courage Sean's mom displayed in this book by being brutally honest about how she felt and how she responded to Sean. Her words are dead on. The frustration and isolation she felt are shared by many , including myself (although not many are brave enough to voice it) It was comforting to me to know I am not alone in my feelings...and also to know that even though I am not always perfect in my responses to my childrens' actions that it will not guarantee their demise. Their experiences with the "professionals" in the field went hand in hand with my own experiences. Sad but true. I found myself rooting for both Sean and his family to be successful in their endeavors. Sean's writing is eye opening and makes it easy for the reader to wrap their mind around how he was feeling. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who wants to get an honest idea of what it is really like to either be autistic or live with an autistic child.

If only more of us could read this! I remember when autism was viewed as hopeless. Then came the relentless debate about its causes. And all the while, Judy Barron and Eustacia Cutler were just putting one foot in front of the other, loving their autistic children and patiently building the connections that would bring Sean and Temple to us when they decided to join up. There must have been other mothers trying to do the same, other families who just refused to treat their autistic children like house pets or aliens, but I have not been privileged to read their children's stories. I'm so glad Sean's has been published. His journey was so much different from Temple's, and yet so much the same, that it was a fascinating read as an autobiography and also as a case study. For a reader who doesn't care about social science, it's a good story that reads like well written fiction.

This book was a revelation for me. After reading it and another book, "The unwritten Rules of Social Conduct" buy Temple Grandon, I realized that our now 43 year old son would have been diagnosed with Asperger's if it had been better known at that time. All of a sudden his challenges and the events of his childhood made sense. The best part is that it is possible, with intense effort, to help these people live rewarding lives and integrate with society. Judy and Sean Barron are to be congratulated for their effort and for sharing this deeply personal account. You won't read it with a dry eye but, if your life is touched by autism, you better read it!

Slow and repetitive in the beginning it gets better. It goes back and forth between mother and Austic child.Nice to see things from there perspective.
  • Umi
This book provides insight into the perceptions of both the typical and Autistic world. For the educator it is an important read that opens up discussions for understanding behaviors and therefore interventions in the classroom. For parents and family the book provides a look into the child's mind and explaination for why they do, say and perceive the world around them, which feels strange and frightening. This is an easy read that is hard to put down.

I was brought to tears by this story. I work with adults with disabilities. I was looking for some reading to connect to the population I serve on a deeper level. I was immediately drawn to this story. Could not put it down. Well written and pulls at your heart strings. You can see Sean develop as the book progresses into the man he grows to be. Beautiful story - I highly recommend!
I read this book for a college psych class on abnormal psychology. I had to write a term paper with this as a reference. I enjoyed this book a lot! I liked how Sean and his mom, Judy wrote both of their sides to what it was like growing up with autism and being the parent of a child with autism. it gave a great perspective!!
