Set Free Autism and ADHD: Parenting Special Needs’ Children by Lilly J. Faith is an invaluable information resource for parents and caregivers on caring for children with special needs, particularly those with autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. While it is not meant to be diagnostic in nature, it is a heartfelt story and one that is strengthened by a mother’s experience of caring for her firstborn child with both autism and ADHD. As the author shares her story, it shows you the importance of patience and resilience in overcoming the challenging behaviors that go with special needs children. As you meet Noah, the book’s subject, you are guided in a hands-on approach to conventional and complementary therapies, engagement with naturopaths, behavioral specialists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, nutritionists, autism specialists, enrichment therapists, and applied behavior therapists.

You can expect Set Free Autism and ADHD to bring unity to families and love in family settings by applying the guidance given, and you have Lilly J. Faith to thank for it. She even provides you with some reflective activities at the end of selected chapters to give you a stronger feel and a keener perspective on the subject. Her smooth and easy-to-follow narrative gives you a sense of preparedness, considering that the usual challenges of parenting are compounded for parents and primary caregivers when it comes to matters dealing with special needs. Books by other parents of children with special needs are an integral part of self-care and support, as it helps to ease the burden of stress and equips parents and caregivers with the necessary tools to better understand the nature of those with behavioral difficulties. If you ever fear about your child’s future, feel guilty about your limits to protect your child, and feel insecure around parents of typically developing children, I strongly recommend that you read this book from start to finish to begin your healing journey and help you to provide better care for your child.

Lilly J. Faith has authored an excellent book for parents of differently-abled children. Set Free Autism and ADHD: Parenting Special Needs Children is a book written by a mom with a child on the Spectrum to assist other parents who also have a child on the Spectrum. Meet the characters: the star - Noah (a sweet young boy who develops Autism and ADHD), the younger sister - Abby, who loves and bonds well with Noah, the director/researcher - Mum, and the best supporting husband - Dad. This is the heartfelt story of Noah and his development with Autism and ADHD. Lilly shares the struggles, but she also emphasizes the victories. The information she shares will help any parent as they navigate the whirling waters of these two disorders.

If you have or know someone who has a child on the Spectrum or with ADHD, this is the book for you. I understand the value of a guide such as Set Free Autism and ADHD since my child is on the Spectrum and has uncontrolled epilepsy. Lilly J. Faith did much research on the subject to make sure her differently-abled child, Noah, received all the help he needed to live with this diagnosis, and thrive. The techniques Lilly shares are helpful for all parents of children on the Spectrum. While Lilly reminds us that the course she took with Noah was designed especially for Noah, the techniques can be tried by all. She does recommend finding specialists to work out a plan for your child. Find out what works best for your child. You will be glad you bought and read this book.
