Book Details


Tami's daughter, Heather, was diagnosed a month shy of her 13th birthday with High-Functioning Autism, Asperger's Syndrome. She watched her daughter spiral out of control medically and educationally until she found an occupational therapist who explained how Heather's Sensory Processing Disorder impacted the Autism. Together mother and daughter learned from this OT how a Sensory Diet, CranioSacral Therapy, and Bio-Medical Therapies can lead to Functioning Recovery. Tami navigated the public school environment and the medical community to get the right support for Heather, who succeeded in spite of the educational discrimination. Tami shares her recommendations for other parents as she tells the story of Heather's Coming Through the Fog.
