John and Robin Kirton Family's NEW Autism Book

We would like your opinion as quickly as you are able. We've been thinking that it would be a good idea to tell our story in a book and we'd like your help. What information or area in our lives would you like the most to know about? Please respond with your ideas to our email address: autism_bites@yahoo.com.

We want to have the book published before our documentary is shown on Discovery Health channel in October.

Thanks,
John and Robin Kirton

What I would really like to see in the book is how to explain to people why your house is different and that it is ok.

I think it would be cool to have a list to show people what autistic accommodations in houses are like... and also what we go through on a daily basis just to survive :)

When I emailed my family that video clip- there response was all the same. They said "OMG, that's Raya's house"

Thank you so much for sharing.

HI, I'M A MOM WITH 4 KIDS WITH AUTISM. ONE GIRL 3 BOYS. I FIND THE HARDEST IS DEALING WITH OTHER PEOPLE. THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT WHY MY HOUSE IS A MESS. IT GET'S BETTER HAS THEY GET OLDER. THEY ARE 19,13 GIRL,11,AND10. THE BOYS ARE NON VERBAL AND MY GIRL HAS ASPERGERS. MY KIDS ARE THE JOY OF MY LIFE. I'M 38 AND SINGLE. THEY ALL GET SSI AND CHILD SUPPORT THAT HELPS A LOT. I WORKED BUT HAD TO STOP BECAUSE OF THE TIME ISSUE AND I DIDNT WANT ANY BODY RAISING MY KIDS. NOBODY UNDERSTANDS THEM LIKE ME. THEY ARE DOING REALLY WELL IN SCHOOL. NO BEHAVIOR ISSUS AT ALL . NOBODY IS ON ANY MEDS. THEY ALL HAVE SENSORY ISSUES. AT TIMES IT CAN BE HARD BECAUSE I HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE SCHOOL SYSTEM. TRYING TO GET ALL THE SERVICES THAT THEY PROVIDE. THAT HAS BEEN A PROMBLEM. THEY ALLWAYS WANT TO BLAM MY HOME FOR MY KIDS HAVING AUTISM. I ALLWAY WIN. I NO MY RIGHTS FOR MY KIDS. I HAVE BEEN BLESSED TO HAVE GREAT KIDS. THEY GIVE ME NO ISSUES OR NO REAL CONCERNS. THE TEACHES LOVE THEM AND THEY ALL GO TO DIFFRENT SCHOOLS. I'M UP AT 4:30 EVERY MORNING EVEN ON THE WEEKENDS BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE USE TO. I'M ALLWAY COOKING. MY KIDS LOVE TO EAT. THEY DO NOT EAT THE SAMR THINGS. I LOVE BEING THERE MOM. I KNOW THAT THEY LOVE ME. I GET HUGS ALL THE TIME. THEY DO NOT HAVE TO TELL ME. IT COULD BE WORSE. HAVE A BLESSED DAY. LISA, ERIKA, CHRISTIAN, JUSTIN AND JAY.

Do you have a publisher? IS it possible to have a book done and printed in that short of time?

Good luck

Hi,
I'm Deanna- and I wanted to throw out some hope to all suffering with Autism in their family. My doctor's son suffered from Autism- Dr. Buttar has become a leader in Autism research and his son no longer has any autistic symptoms- he and his son speak to Congress as well as Medical research-etc.- in hopes to get the recognition it deserves- please check him out- I have seen and read your story and my heart aches for you- I think he can reassure new hope-
