For more than eight years, author Dr. David A. Bishop and his family struggled to get answers for their daughter, Elizabeth, who was diagnosed with autism at only a year and a half old.
Autism is a condition approaching epidemic proportions. It has become so pervasive most public schools today have entire classrooms dedicated to teaching autistic children. Despite this prevalence, support, education, health care, and legal support have lagged. Autism is poorly understood by most people, yet just about everyone knows of a family or child afflicted with it.
In Elizabeth’s Song, Bishop narrates their saga of love, tears, and hope, sharing the lessons they learned about handling common issues, such as health care, insurance, and educational needs. A how-to guide to also dealing with the emotional aspects of autism, it provides support, strength, and hope in the form of pertinent scripture and testimony of the endless blessing of God’s love.
