I exercise at Curves with Lee Ann. We talk quite a bit about our children. I have another son who was diagnosed with depression at six years of age. There are quite a few similarities as well as vast differences between depression and autism. We bounce ideas off of each other and share our frustrations, successes, and failures. We have joked around about the book that we could come up with.
Today I am giving away one of Lee Ann's books. It is about a young girl who comes across an autistic girl and learns how to deal with the situation. My daughter is the self proclaimed president of Lee Ann's fan club, when my daughter was younger she devoured Lee Ann's series of four books. Lee Ann graciously donated book four for this hop.
“Children,” Sister Mikkelsen said, “raise your hand if you know Chrissy Henderson.” We looked at each other and squirmed, but no one raised a hand. Finally, Viola said, “Well, we know about her, but we don’t really know her.” Chrissy Henderson screams and throws bread during the sacrament. She goes to her own special school, and she has her own one-girl Primary class. And now Sariah has agreed to go visit Chrissy in her class . . . all by herself. Learn with Sariah as she tries to play with a new friend who definitely does not talk as most people do. Lee Ann Setzer, a speech pathologist who has worked with many children with autism, takes readers on an educational journey as Sariah McDuff learns to walk as Jesus walked by showing love to someone in need of a friend.
