Pressestimmen

'Bill Davis says in his introduction that he wrote this book in the hope 'he can open up somebody's eyes and give them some understanding of autism.' Well, he has done that, and I have learnt more about what it must be like to bring up a child with autism than I ever imagined I would... This book takes us through the struggles which a family has from the moment of suspecting that 'something's not right'...Davis has to fight medical, educational, therapeutic and other professionals in order to get the help that his son Chris needs...the strategies he uses - never taking no for an answer - will fortify many a parent fighting so that their child receives the help he or she needs and which is badly needed right now. Parents of an autistic child are struggling, and Breaking Autism's Barriers will come as a comfort to many fathers and mothers who feel they are in the dark about how to help their child' -Jill Curtis, family2000onwards.com 'I learned more about children with autism spectrum disorders in one day with Bill Davis and his family than in all the time I have spent on this issue before or since. Also, I discovered the remarkable dedication and tenacity of parents whose children are challenged by disabilities. This book will be an inspiration to every parent of a special child.' - Congressman Jim Greenwood - Sponsor of the Advancement in Pediatric Autism Act and Autism Advocate
