Giveaway: THE EVERYDAY ADVOCATE: Standing Up For Your Autistic Child Book - CLOSED/WINNER

Thank you all for entering. 
The winner is: Sweeter the berry,

Congratulations! I've sent you an email



Winner #2 speck135les,


*****
No one knows why autism has become so prevalent, however, many families are now living with autism as part of their lives and having to learn a whole new way of dealing with the every day challenges that autism brings. 
It is wonderful that we have a month to bring awareness about autism.

April is National Autism Awareness month, and nationally recognized autism advocacy expert Areva Martin, Esq. shares her hard-won knowledge as a parent of an autistic child—and an individual rights attorney— THE EVERYDAY ADVOCATE: Standing Up For Your Autistic Child (NAL Paperback; $15.00), out in paperback April 5.

In a sea of impractical advice, quirky theories, and all-around unhelpful tips, Areva Martin is a rational, down-to-earth guide. THE EVERYDAY ADVOCATE is filled with practical, real-world actions that work, lists helpful websites and organizations, and gives parents and caregivers the emotional support they need as they face the challenge of successfully standing up for children with special needs.

A Q&A or review can cover:
• Getting a diagnosis
• The principles of advocacy
• Balancing a career and a child with autism
• Navigating the therapy maze
• Networking with other families affected by autism
• And much more
Areva Martin, Esq. has appeared on Dr. Phil, Good Morning America, and FOX News, and has counseled hundreds of parents of autistic children. A graduate of University of Chicago and Harvard Law School , she is the founding and managing partner of Martin & Martin, LLP. Additionally, Martin is the president and co-founder of Special Needs Network, Inc. (SNN), a non-profit launched specifically to support families with special needs children.
Based on the reviews I've seen, this is a great book for anyone wanting help in their family. It covers a wide range of topics and lots of information in one place that will bring relief and help in making decisions that need to be made.

You can win a copy of this book for yourself or someone you know who would be helped by this informative book.

  5. This is Wonderful!! Wished I had a resource like this book when my son got a diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome many years ago. We had a long road of doctors, schools and clueless administrators who wouldn't or couldn't help us. It took a new state, doctors and people who cared to make a difference in my son's life.

    Thank you for all you do for awareness and support!! You are Awesome!!

  7. it would be for me. and the mercury filler is being used almost exclusively now on vaccinations of course autism is more common, big business has interests in keeping your child sick and only by being willing to go the extra mile can you fix whats wrong. i had aspergers im almost well now because of turmeric yes i have headaches but i can go nt mainstream speck135les at yahoo

  8. I would donate this to a local non-profit I worked for. They provide therapy to children with autism and have a parent library of books as well. This looks like a great addition for them!
