Must Read “Forever Boy: A Mother’s Memoir of Autism and Finding Joy” By Kate Swenson
Approximately 1 in 54 children in America is diagnosed with autism, making Autism Awareness Month each April ever more crucial to spreading awareness, knowledge and, most importantly, compassion, for those with autism in their lives. One of those people is Kate Swenson, whose world stopped when her then-toddler, Cooper, was diagnosed with severe, nonverbal autism. Cooper is now 11, with three younger siblings. In her “Forever Boy” book, Swenson shares her family’s story – raw, honest and uplifting. Available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bookshop, anywhere books are sold.
