about

Autism does not sleep. When night falls, families everywhere tuck their children into bed for what will typically be a good night’s sleep, but the care required by the child with special needs continues around the clock. Like Grandfather’s pocket watch, if not wound consistently, the ticking will stop. Without proper early intervention there is a very real danger of watching a child fade from this world into a world he has created in his own mind. There is a push toward early diagnosis and education because it is universally understood that early intervention is vital for optimal gain. The younger a child is, the better chance of increased efficacy and possible re-growth of neural pathways. Teachers and therapists often provide some services during the day, but the family is the 24/7 team.

Editorial Reviews

"Tic Toc Autism Clock" is an autism mariner's North Star, providing not just strategies to organize the chaos and a guide to setting realistic goals, but a step by step plan on how it can all be achieved. Every autism parent needs to feel they are doing all they can, that the specific needs of their own child are being addressed fully- Tic Toc Autism Clock helps them do just that. This book gently takes the reader's hand and leads them through a multitude of topics from recognizing the causes of specific behaviors to addressing problems in communication, and all while stressing the nurturing of the child beneath the disability. For a parent feeling overwhelmed and drowning when confronted with an autism diagnosis, this book provides the anchor to steady them, and a guide on how to be that steadfast light that will guide their child over the rough seas of childhood autism to land them safely and gently on the distant shore of an adulthood with endless possibilities."--Liz Becker, Author, Consultant and SpeakerAutism and the World According to Matt
