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 that he was having a seizure. 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—one amazing doctor discovered that Evan suffered from autism.

Though Evan finally had a diagnosis, Jenny didn’t know what to do next and soon found herself alone, with no resources except her determination to help her son. She eventually realized that she’d have to become a detective. She spoke with numerous 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. In this book, she creates a roadmap for parents who are concerned about their own child.

Jenny does more than just reveal the winning formula that worked for Evan. Her account 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.

    " Personal and informative. I loved Jenny's and her son's, Evan, story and her journey to help her little boy get better. Truly moving and inspiring. I will warn that it is Jenny McCarthy so she swears- a lot, but didn't find it offensive- I thought it was how she expressed the emotions of a mother of an autistic child as she faced the challenges autism presents. I recommend it for caregivers of autistic kids, teachers, family members, and anyone who wonders/ is interested in the challenges that autism presents. "

    " This is a wonderful book about autism. Jenny writes about things that doctors did not tell her about. She did a lot of research along with talking to other mothers that had autistic children and found out lots of things that ended up helping her own child. I strongly encourage everyone to read this wether you have a child with autism or not. You are bound to know someone that does and may be able to help them with the info. you read in this book. "

    " This book was a little bit strange to me. I am really interested in autism as I am a teacher and come across children with autism frequently. I thought it might be interesting to read a celebrity's account of her son's autism. The beginning of the book was really good and drew me in to her story. But then she started to get a bit pushy about her ideas about the origin and treatment of autism. It almost seemed like the book was pushing a very specific agenda. Also, I was very confused about her definition of "God". One minute she is talking about God in a Christian/Catholic sense and then she is reading tarot cards, asking Mormons to pray over her son, and looking at various Eastern religions. I realize that there are many people who believe that all roads lead to God, but I was just caught off guard by her switching back and forth between very different religions with very different beliefs. Overall, I didn't consider the book to be a waste of time and her love for her son is very evident. However, I don't think I would necessarily recommend this book to others. "
