    Bringing Up John is an extremely well written and heart felt boo

    Bringing Up John is an extremely well written and heart felt book which brings tears one moment and laughter the next. Ellen and Al's struggles and joys raising John, who is living with autism, give hope and comfort to those who are close to it. Those who are not are led into a world where they can learn more about a disorder that doesn't get enough attention. Ellen does an excellent job telling a story that is both enjoyable and informative at the same time. It was hard to put it down and I read it in one day. I highly recommend it.

    Ellen Walker gives the reader a bird's eye view about living wit

    Ellen Walker gives the reader a bird's eye view about living with a child on the autism spectrum in Bringing Up John. At times the book makes you smile, and at other times it brings tears to your eyes. As Ellen indicates the journey continues due to the fact autism is a life long condition. She describes the struggles with the school system to make sure John was getting his needs met in a school setting. Ellen describes making sure services were in place and ready for John as an adult. This is not an easy task, and you are constantly advocating for your child. Ellen also says trust your instincts when something seems awry. As a mother you know your child and their needs. Bringing Up John is a book you should read, if you have a child on the autism spectrum.
