Andy Speaks: Mother and Son Talk About Life with His Autism By Carolyn L. Coen, Andrew E. Coen Cover Image


Andy Speaks is a sincere testimonial that reveals dramatic changes in the life of Andy, a man who has autism. He tells his own story of adversities overcome and challenges met. Interwoven with his stories are reports by his mom, Carolyn. She augments his revelations with stories of her involvement in his life. Andy's caregiver, teacher, advocate and audience, Carolyn gave Andy consistent and deep faith in her own perception and understanding of his goals and abilities. Her dedicated efforts to ensure his success-together with his own determination-paid off.

Early chapters alternate between Andy's story and Carolyn's reports of how she helped him realize his potential. In later chapters, Andy tells of his independent life and many accomplishments. Finally, Carolyn describes the attitudes and efforts that worked to help him achieve his successes. Her final words reveal his ongoing growth toward a normal life and the ways his growth reflects her success.

In all, this book reads like a story, but every word is true. You won't stop reading until you get to the end.
