A heart warming book about the relationship between Lorcan, a boy with selective mutism( he will only speak to certain people) and his cat. The book is interesting on a number of levels. As well as looking at how the cat helps the Lorcan to speak , it also looks at the way in which the family has to fight to get Lorcan the help he needs with his selective mutism and autism.

Media class: Paperback
Publisher: Orion Spring

Note: For every child diagnosed with autism, there are usually two worried parents who may not have a clue about the condition or how best to help their little one. Jessie Hewitson's son was two-years old when he was diagnosed with autism. Like many other worried parents before her, Jessie's immediate instinct was to learn everything she could about the condition and how best to support her child. But when The Times award-winning journalist embarked on her own investigative process, she soon uncovered a cloud of conflicting, panic-inducing information. She realised that advice from unsafe corners of the Internet, strangers and even well-meaning friends can make you feel overwhelmed, vulnerable and disheartened. She decided to write this book to provide other parents in similar situations with a wealth of practical and reliable support, all in one place. General adult
