Description

  • Great product!
  • 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
