Update: World Autism Day 2014 – Free Book Giveaway now available

WAAD-UN-lsThis year’s World Autism Awareness Day has special resonance for my family. By coincidence, the day also coincides with my son leaving mainstream education and moving to specialist provision at an autism base attached to a primary school. This comes after a lengthy period of struggles with local authorities for funding and support, increasing difficulties in school and the realisation that our autistic six-year-old boy is able to cope less and less in a standard classroom set up.

But rather than being sad about the move, we feel it is a cause for celebration. World Autism Day for us is not just a chance to spread awareness but also a chance to celebrate the fact that specialist support is available and an opportunity like this is open to our boy. Spreading awareness can only help make that support even more available. I hope so.

I’d like to support the day by offering free downloads of my book ‘Life with an Autistic Son’ from Amazon UK and Amazon US. It will be available for a limited period from today (Sunday 30th March) up to and including World Autism Awareness day on Wednesday April 2nd.

Thanks x

B’s Dad

    Hope things go well for your son in his new unit. I guess we are lucky in the developed world to have such specialist facilities. I guess autism must go unnoticed or at leat untreated in the third world.

    Good luck with the move, really hope that the extra understanding and effort will make all the difference and allow him to develop to his full potential – what all parents want for their children x
