Back in 2019, I published Where Does My Autistic Son Belong?. It chronicles my struggle to understand and cope with Sebastien’s aggression that erupted during his puberty and raged unabated for more than five years.
Thanks to our focus on Sebastien’s well-being, rather than his deficits, Sebastien is thriving under the his carers in Bali, amidst nature that is more suited to his temperament. Today, he is doing MORE than ever before. Far more importantly, he is doing so with a BIG smile on his face.
With our second session, I am delighted to be speaking with a special guest:
