Overview

Bill Davis is the father of Chris, who has autism. To get a diagnosis, effective education, skilled therapy and funding for his son, Bill has had to overcome numerous obstacles and fight for change to a system which seemed impenetrable. In the course of doing so, his entire life has altered.

Breaking Autism's Barriers chronicles Bill's struggle for proper help for Chris. It is also an honest, direct account from a father's perspective of bringing up a child with autism, and the pressures and pleasures this brings to him, his wife Jae and his daughter Jessica. Bill describes their daily life, his increasing involvement in advocacy and education, and strategies for coping developed by Jae. His story offers advice and inspiration for other parents battling for support: it is also one of the few books available which give a father's perspective on living with autism.
