Overview

Autism is a challenging puzzle ... but Autism Dad has a clue!

Follow the adventures of Autism Dad in this collection of essays by award-winning syndicated columnist Rob Errera.

Funny, informative, poignant, and engaging, Autism Dad explores the initial devastation of an autism diagnosis, the autism/vaccine controversy, autism in the media, education, therapy and treatments. Above all, Autism Dad is about living with, raising, and loving a child with autism, told from a father’s perspective.

“I found many autism books written by autism moms and medical professionals, but not a lot written by autism dads,” said Errera. “I decided to write one myself…but as I sifted through the autism columns I’ve written since my son’s diagnosis in 2003, I realized the first draft was already done!”

These columns are revised and updated in Autism Dad, along with three new essays and extensive behind-the-scenes notes that reveal the personal struggles and triumphs of raising a special-needs child.

Autism Dad: Adventures in Raising An Autistic Son, Essays by Rob Errera is available in print and digital formats wherever ebooks are sold online.

    Very Highly Recommended: A keen perspective on autism written by an accomplished journalist who is an Autism Dad

    Rob Errera, a multi-award-winning journalist, has taken his experience raising an autistic son to an unusual level of sensitivity and understanding. He offers a shining example of the adage, "it's not what happens to you, it's how you handle it." Rob digs into current diagnostic and treatment tools, media attention directed to autism, the actual day-to-day living with a son's autism and the public's responses to the condition itself. Maintaining and strengthening his own family bonds (Rob and his wife Laura also have a daughter who does not have autism), Rob's essays reflect his search for answers, his abilty to push the envelope for more progress dealing with autism and his great love for his son Rocco, his wife and daughter. a long-time, successful writer, Rob has opened his heart on these pages and maintained the humor it takes to cope on a daily basis while living a differently-directed life. Autism Dad is a book to share and admire. Two Thumbs Up!

    I highly recommend this book!

    I didn¿t know very much about autism before reading Rob¿s book of essays, but I found his easy writing style very open and inviting and still, very informative to all aspects of his subject and I learned a lot. Each essay carries its own level of engaging, often humorous, informative storytelling. The collection of essays in Autism Dad is a poignant diary expressing the love of his child/children and family and taught me a lot about the trials and triumphs from the inside looking out and outside looking in to special-need parenting. Whether autism is part of your life or not, its information and perspective can apply to everyone, which I think makes it an important book to read. A really great job.
