For ten years, Ann was told by professionals that she needed to accept Robin's disabilities. Not one to give up in the face of adversity, Ann finally found quality professionals to help her. Ann knew education and therapies were Robin's priority, but self-image and socialization became her focus. Ann also knew Robin's inappropriate behaviors were unacceptable in society. Ann and her husband, Bob, became Robin's case managers and Robin progressed beyond their wildest dreams.
Autism is not a one-size-fits-all disability, so focusing on just one intervention did not lead Robin to successful adulthood. Many steps had to be taken along the way to get her successfully to her goal! Parents and autism professionals must work together, developing quality support and services that are cost-effective-so we can all believe in the future for our children.
Today, Robin has two jobs, lives in her own condominium, drives her own car, and is a part of her community. This is her story!

This book details one families struggles and achievements in raising a child with autism. Not a biography but more a book of a thousand ideas and suggestions- everything from diet to therapies to dealing with social security issues. The book chronicles the journey of the entire Millan family as they deal with Robins unique issues. Although there is nothing unique about autism-40 years ago there was not the help or awareness that is available today. This book should inspire and give hope to all parents as their children transition into adulthood.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
