Autism & Alleluias is a lovely read about a mother’s search for spiritual guidance in helping her autistic son. She details varied situations and how calling upon her faith had helped her in her pursuit of inner peace. She talks about situations that are all too familiar to parents of autistic children and you will be able to identify with her feelings and a desire for inner support. For those looking for a spiritual read at this time of Holy Week you will find what you are looking for in this book.
