We ALWAYS love getting Facebook messages from you since we consider you all family and this one was especially exciting as one of our listeners has just published a book about Autism in time for Autism Awareness Month. His name is Aaron Wright and he wrote the book for his daughter Julia who has autism. This is the note we received from his wife Lisa. SO AMAZING! Here is a link to the book so you can check it out!
Hi Marcus and Sandy. I’m writing to share something for your good news. My daughter and I listen to your show every morning on our drive to school (about 40 minutes or so) and the good news segment is her favorite. My daughter is 13 and she’s autistic. Getting her appropriate help and support in school has been a challenge. In an effort to cope and in hopes of starting a much needed conversation about how our most vulnerable students are educated in our public schools, my husband has just written a book chronicling our journey with special education in public schools. Both my daughter and I (and our son) are incredibly proud of him. Instead of wallowing in anger and resentment, he found a way to channel his energy in to hopefully helping others feel less alone in their experience. My daughter is so excited about the book and really wanted me to share it with you so you might consider sharing it on your morning show. Her name is Julia and the book is called Daisy Has Autism. April is autism awareness month and today is considered World Autism Awareness Day. We’d be delighted if you would consider sharing our good news. Thank you.
