Book cover for Worn Like a Badge

Worn Like a Badge: One Family’s Heartfelt, Humorous and Sometimes Harsh Account of Life with Twin Daughters with Autism by J.L. Verita (2018)

Worn Like a Badge is the best way to describe my ownership of my daughters’ diagnosis with autism. It illustrates my desperate need to embrace and accept this truth, which hopefully would prepare me for the battle ahead. Keeping this a secret, pretending this was not as bad as it was, was not an option for the girls or for me. There was no time for fear or shame. I needed to be free from the weight of this disease in order to attack it with all my will. I wish I had this book when the girls were diagnosed. It may have hastened my transformation from victim to victor. It is a must read for anyone who has or is caring for a child with a disability. I hope that it proves as helpful to the reader as it has been to the writer.

Three Times the Love: Finding Answers and Hope for our Triplets with Autism by Lynn & Randy Gaston (2010)

Lynn and Randy Gaston were overjoyed to discover they were having triplets after many arduous years of trying to conceive. But at eighteen months, the boys began exhibiting odd new behaviors-among them, toe-walking, arm-flapping, and in Nicholas, a sudden muteness. Terrified and dumbfounded, Lynn began researching their behavior on the Internet. The same glaring diagnosis kept popping up-each boy was displaying symptoms of autism, though each at a different point on the spectrum. Receiving little support from their own pediatrician, Randy and Lynn hired their own therapists and began intensive behavioral treatment, not covered by their health insurance.
