If someone you love is diagnosed with autism, LOUDER THAN WORDS is the first book you should read. One morning, Jenny McCarthy was having a cup of coffee when she sensed something was wrong. She ran into her two-year-old son Evan's room and found him seizing. In that moment, Jenny went from being the mother of an average toddler to being in the midst of a medical odyssey. Doctor after doctor misdiagnosed Evan until after many harrowing life threatening episodes later one amazing doctor discovered that Evan is autistic. Even though Evan finally had a diagnosis, Jenny didn't know what to do next and found herself alone without any resources except for her determination to help her son. Jenny eventually realized that she'd have to become a detective. She spoke with many doctors, parents, governmental agencies, private foundations, and essentially earned a PhD in Google Research. At last, she discovered an intense combination of behavioral therapy, diet, and supplements that became the key to saving Evan from autism. And now, in this book she creates a roadmap for parents who are concerned about their child. Jenny does more than just reveal the winning formula that worked for Evan. Her story shares the frustrations and joys of raising an autistic child and shows how with love and determination a parent can shape their child's life and happiness.
