A Mother’s Amazing Quest to Help Her Child with Autism – Autism: A Family Journey

October 15, 2019


A Mother's Amazing Quest to Help Her Child with Autism: Autism – A Family Journey https://www.autismparentingmagazine.com/autism-a-family-journeyWhen Cindy and Phil Rasmussen welcomed baby son Steven into the world in 1971, the diagnosis and treatment of autism spectrum disorder also was in its infancy.  In Autism – A Family Journey, published by Kitsap Publishing, author Cindy Rasmussen charts the difficult but inspiring course they have navigated ever since through a maze of medical institutions, schools, and bureaucracies in their quest to ensure a happy, healthy and productive life for Steven from childhood through adulthood, while at the same time providing some level of normal family life for their other two sons.

“Cindy Rasmussen’s moving memoir of life with Steven is engaging, honest, painful and at times, very funny,” said Ingemar Anderson, president and founder of Kitsap Publishing. “I know that other families of autistic individuals, as well as anyone else who reads this book, will find inspiration and encouragement in the pages of Autism: A Family Journey.”

“If you are the parent of an autistic child, I want to share our story with you so you will know you are not alone,” Cindy Rasmussen writes in her introduction to the book. “Our story does not have a ‘happily ever after’ ending, but it is a story of hope and encouragement.”
