Jul 19, Pages. She was a beautiful doelike child, with an intense, graceful fragility.

In her first year, she picked up words, smiled and laughed, and learned to walk. But then Anne-Marie began to turn inward. And when her little girl lost some of the words she had acquired, cried inconsolably, and showed no interest in anyone around her, Catherine Maurice took her to doctors who gave her a devastating diagnosis: Finally, Anne-Marie was saved by an intensive behavioral therapy.

It is an absolutely unforgettable book, as beautifully written as it is informative. Throughout the book the author the autistic child's mother is portrayed as extremely emotional, conflicted, and not knowing the right thing to do.

The husband is strong and supportive, and steps in to be "rational" and keep the family firmly on the right path.

I mentioned to my husband that it reminds me of those old cautionary tales of drug use. The "anonymous" diaries by teens who innocently started to experiment with drugs, then flew out of control, then found god and neatly sewed up their recovery.

It's like a "Go Ask Alice" for autism. In the book, the autistic children have access to ABA and speech therapy every single day.

They have a mother who stays home with them and a father who is a wealthy investment banker with a large and supportive family. There are many parents of autistic children Sam and I included who do not have access to these things. In the book there is no mention of financial hardship, no mention of insurance companies or the headache and fight even now more than ten years after the book was published to get ABA recognized as a vital part of recovering autistic children.

In addition, she finds Dr. Welch, a supporter of holding therapy. With rigorous training, Anne Marie begins to recover.

Originally believing holding therapy is the key, Catherine is eventually convinced that Dr. Welch is a self serving therapist with little to offer, and that it is in fact Bridget and Robin, the speech therapist, who are succeeding in bringing Anne Marie back to the world.

Through her faith and through behavioral therapy, Catherine and the others are able to wench Anne Marie from autism, and watch as she slowly regains her sense of normalcy. When things are finally beginning to improve in the family, Catherine begins to worry about her next child, Michel.They also tried other therapies, like hug therapy and play therapy and decided that it didn't work.

Interesting to see the workings of Lovaas. The author brilliantly blended information about the history of autism and treatments with her own story and experience with her daug Beautiful story of a mother willing to go to any lengths to find an effective treatment for her daughter, and then son, diagnosed with autism.

At this time, there was not a lot of information about autism. Parts of the book were helpful, but I don't believe children are "cured" of autism. Fortunately, she also had a lot of money--enough to fly in a behavioral therapist from the other side of the country and set that person to work with her child for several hours every day while she waited hopefully outside the room.
