dc.description.abstract When Anthony Macris' son was diagnosed with autism, he and his partner Kathy had two choices: do what they were told and could afford or do what they thought best. This is the tragic, joyful, instructive story of how they confronted the condition that changed their lives. Before the onset of autism, Alex was a vibrant, healthy little boy, Anthony and Kathy the happiest of parents. Afterwards Alex was struck mute, barely able to recognise them. From then on, all that mattered was finding the right treatment. But how to do this, for a disorder with no known cause and no cure? Eventually Anthony and Kathy decided to take control of their son's therapy themselves, turning every aspect of their lives around in the process. It took a long time, but the radiance did return to Alex's face. By then he was a completely different person, and so were his parents.
