Journeys of Gold is a positive, uplifting book about raising a child on the Autism Spectrum. Much of the information available on ASD, or in our case, Aspergers Syndrome, is quite overwhelming as it is normally read at a time when you are facing the thought of your child being ‘different’ or going through the draining diagnostic process. Journeys of Gold is two stories in one – we both have very different experiences of Aspergers Syndrome yet have both discovered that there is joy to be found in having a child on the Autism Spectrum. This book is one that can be read by parents, teachers, support workers, chaplains, families, grandparents and child care workers and it gives an insight into what it means to parent a child on the Autism Spectrum, as well as offers strategies that can be used after diagnosis (especially when you are faced with long waiting lists to access some services). It looks at important things like starting kindergarten, family relationships, communication, self care and transitioning to school. Our book is full of hope, practical ideas, shares that joy can be found in the little things and that life is not over once a child receives a diagnosis – it is different.
