About the Book

In Strong and Courageous, the author comes along beside you as you maneuver the twists and turns of parenting a child with autism. She guides you through, not only the practicalities of each stage but also through the emotional dynamics involved in this often puzzling and uncertain journey. You will receive many nuggets of wisdom as she shares from her own experience and from the experiences of the families she has counseled. Strong and Courageous will take you through the many steps and stages of autism, from the initial diagnosis all the way to long-term planning. You will discover just how strong and courageous you really are as you learn to draw upon God’s strength. And your hearts will be encouraged as you realize you are not walking this journey alone.
