For parents of children with autism and doctors treating autism, this groundbreaking guide will give you the tools to help your child overcome the autism epidemic.
Marcia Hinds and her family were told there was no recovery from autism. Her son, Ryan, would have to be stuck alone on Autism Island, as the family called it. There was no cure. There was no hope. But what if there was?
I Know You’re in There tells the true story of how, through diet, applied behavior analysis, consistent and rigorous medical treatment, and more, Ryan’s family was able to overcome autism. It took a lot of trial and error, but today Ryan is an aerospace engineer, has friends, and lives a happy “typical” life. His recovery wasn’t miraculous, but instead the result of getting proper medical care, and his parents never taking “no” for an answer.
Marcia provides real world examples and actionable steps to take to get your child the treatment and care that could help them beat autism. If your child has been diagnosed with autism, or the warning signs are there, which are also covered in the book, I Know You’re in There is an indispensable resource in your fight against autism spectrum disorder.
Marcia Hinds will make you rethink autism. She has degrees in psychology and sociology from UCLA and teaching credentials. But Marcia’s most impressive credential is that she is Ryan’s mom and their family survived autism.
“Ryan’s recovery was not miraculous. It was the result of having his medical illness treated. His family persisted in looking for answers until they found a doctor who would do just that. Maybe that was the miracle.” —Bruce L Russell, MD
"Parents need to read I Know You’re In There. This motivating and encouraging story proves that optimal outcomes are possible for children with autism when families look positively to the future by embracing cutting-edge medical treatment combined with standard-of-care rehabilitation.” —Richard Frye, PhD, MD, Chief of The Division of Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Phoenix Children's Hospital neurologist and autism expert
“Marcia Hinds provides a detailed case history of how her child responded to various treatment interventions, many of which are not yet considered evidenced-bases by the scientific community. I truly hope this book will inspire researchers worldwide to study these interventions. Once validated, these treatments will likely become accepted by the autism and medical communities and covered by health insurance companies." — Steve Edelson, PhD, Executive Director, Autism Research Institute
