Autism is a challenging puzzle ... but Autism Dad has a clue!

Follow the adventures of Autism Dad in this collection of essays by award-winning syndicated columnist Rob Errera.

Funny, informative, poignant, and engaging, Autism Dad explores the initial devastation of an autism diagnosis, the autism/vaccine controversy, autism in the media, education, therapy and treatments. Above all, Autism Dad is about living with, raising, and loving a child with autism, told from a father’s perspective.

“I found many autism books written by autism moms and medical professionals, but not a lot written by autism dads,” said Errera. “I decided to write one myself…but as I sifted through the autism columns I’ve written since my son’s diagnosis in 2003, I realized the first draft was already done!”

These columns are revised and updated in Autism Dad, along with three new essays and extensive behind-the-scenes notes that reveal the personal struggles and triumphs of raising a special-needs child.

Autism Dad: Adventures in Raising An Autistic Son, Essays by Rob Errera is available in print and digital formats wherever ebooks are sold online.
