Three times the love: finding answers and hope for our triplets with autism
The powerfully moving story of one family's journey toward healing their triplet sons with autism Lynn and Randy Gaston were overjoyed to discover they were having triplets after many arduous years of trying to conceive. But at eighteen months, the boys began exhibiting odd new behaviors-among them, toe-walking, arm-flapping, and in Nicholas, a sudden muteness. Terrified and dumbfounded, Lynn began researching their behavior on the Internet. The same glaring diagnosis kept popping up-each boy was displaying symptoms of autism, though each at a different point on the spectrum. Receiving little support from their own pediatrician, Randy and Lynn hired their own therapists and began intensive behavioral treatment, not covered by their health insurance. Offering invaluable advice that ranges from educational programs to legal issues to a comprehensive assessment of the therapies and interventions that have worked for their three unique children, Three Times the Love provides a road map for all families who will need to follow them through the trenches. Filled with practical advice and an extensive resource list, it is an essential guide for any family touched by autism.
