Description

Product Description

She was a beautiful doelike child, with an intense, graceful fragility. In her first year, she picked up words, smiled and laughed, and learned to walk. But then Anne-Marie began to turn inward. And when her little girl lost some of the words she had acquired, cried inconsolably, and showed no interest in anyone around her, Catherine Maurice took her to doctors who gave her a devastating diagnosis: autism.
In their desperate struggle to save their daughter, the Maurices plunged into a medical nightmare of false hopes, "miracle cures," and infuriating suggestions that Anne-Marie''s autism was somehow their fault. Finally, Anne-Marie was saved by an intensive behavioral therapy.
Let Me Hear Your Voice is a mother''s illuminating account of how one family triumphed over autism. It is an absolutely unforgettable book, as beautifully written as it is informative.
"A vivid and uplifting story . . . Offers new strength to parents who refuse to give up on their autistic children." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Outstanding . . . Heartfelt . . . A lifeline to families in similar circumstances." -- Library Journal

I''ve read some of the other reviews of this book and overall agree with some of the issues raised (hours of very strict ABA to make an autistic child ''normal'' at all costs, dismissing special interests as ''perseverations'', etc.) but I want to point out that this book was first written years ago. First published in 1993, and at that point the author is looking back in time by several years, so the actual events probably took place in the mid to late eighties. At that point in time there weren''t the online support groups, the various autism organizations, the plethora of well-known therapies from Floortime to Affective Based Language to RDI, or in general much awareness of what autism was at all. Parents were left to their own devices to do the best they could and, even if I disagree on some points, who out there could start from square one like that and still manage to come up with every answer, something we still haven''t managed today?

I will say that, having worked with dozens of autistic children, I find the recovery aspect of the story highly unusual. I''ve seen children that make tremendous progress in functioning, however, I''ve never witnessed a child going from totally autistic to totally not-autistic in the span of about two or three years. I''m not saying the diagnosis wasn''t correct (although there do seem to be a subset of children who do some really classically autistic things as toddlers and yet do not end up being autistic,) just that I don''t think this is typical, even with the best therapy programs.

Overall, I applaud this book as a touching story of a family''s strength and as a breakthrough in people''s thinking on autism treatment. Stories like this one helped more people to see that there are ways to work with and teach autistic children. We may have refined our approach since then, but this realization was an important moment in treatment history.

My professor assigned this book so our grad school class of future special education teachers could have a visceral experience with autism. As the only actual autistic person in the class, I found the book pretty insulting. Autism isn''t a prison from which people like me need to be rescued. It''s an integral part of who we are, to be accepted right along with height and hair color. Yeah, it means that a lot of adaptive behaviors don''t come naturally to us, and that we need to formally learn a lot of things neurotypical kids seem to be born knowing, but I hate to think how the author''s autistic children will feel when they''re grown and realize that their mom sees them as perfect children held back by autism, instead of autistic children who are still fine the way they are. I found myself ranting to my professor about this, and she said I didn''t have to finish the book because I clearly had my own visceral experience with autism. I mean, yeah.

I gave it two stars instead of one because the author seemed genuinely well-meaning.

Such a beautifully-written and informative book. I only take issue with the “recovery” aspect as examinations of the autistic brain have shown marked differences from the neurotypical brain. The author had no way of knowing this in the 80s, of course. There is no such thing as “full recovery” when your brain is differently shaped from the norm, particularly in the white matter where communication between hemispheres takes place. There will always be differences, as explained by Temple Grandin - “I see in pictures.” That said, the ability of these children for adaptation to cultural norms is amazing. I say this as a student and practicer of ABA and as the parent of a child with an ASD diagnosis. Also, check the DSM-5 for the most recent definition of ASD.

Get more practical and up to date information, i am a autism mom now for five years, the quicker and most important and practical information never came from books, and i have many, it came from forums of moms like me , specially TACA facebook group, incredible resource. Also any video on youtube you can find from an autism DR. NOT anybody else, autism DRs or MAPS Drs. Sometimes you hear people/parents who only are venting frustration in their videos but not much proactive info of what to do next. Listen to all the vids you can from all those Drs. that go to the Autism one conference.

Wonderful book for families with an autistic child. I have a child with Down syndrome and wanted to learn more about ABA. This book was recommended by a field professional. As mothers of children with special needs we can all relate to the experience of navigating the field to find proper treatment and therapy in our desire to do the best for our munchkins (regardless of the diagnosis). Our experiences often include opening our homes to the help of strangers and trusting that they know what they''re doing. This book sheds light on that very real experience and was a great introduction for me to ABA.

The cover of the book is just paper WITHOUT any sort of coating to keep it from getting ripped! I don''t know what happened in terms of making this book properly--the cover of this book in NOT the same as the book I purchased in 2018. I bought this as a gift for a teacher who works with autistic children but I am returning it. I would be embarrassed to give this flimsy covered book as a gift

and lifted her blue-green eyes into ours.”
--Catherine Maurice, “Let Me Hear Your Voice: A Family’s Triumph over Autism”

An exquisite work of art and science, written through the critical lens of the researcher with the lyrical pen of the poet. This book presents arguments about the scientific approach of treating autism while singing about the triumph of the human soul.

My son who is autistic is now 8, in mainstream school and doing very well. when I read this book some years ago I found it to be both comforting and very reasuring with lots of practical help. My son was lucky enough to be in a program very similar to the one in the book and the results are aparent if not achieved with a lot of hard work. This book enables parents to start to help their children if the support is not available for whatever reason. Looking back some years on I would say this was the most important book I read on the subject, and only now apreciate who much is changed all of our lives
