The Gaston’s Autism Book – Raising Multiples With Autism
Three Times the Love
The powerfully moving story of one family’s journey toward healing their triplet sons with autism – their decision to document their journey and share their outcomes in this inspirational award-winning autism book
Lynn and Randy Gaston were thrilled to discover they were having triplets boys. But at eighteen months, their three boys began showing odd new behaviors. Among them, toe-walking, arm-flapping, and in Nicholas, a sudden muteness. Lynn began researching their new behaviors on the Internet. The same glaring diagnosis kept popping up over and over again. All of their sons were displaying symptoms of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or autism. Each child was on a different point of the autism spectrum.
While receiving little support from their own pediatrician, Randy and Lynn hired their own therapists. Also, their therapies were not covered by their health insurance. While there are many challenges that parents will face with an autism diagnosis, the Gaston’s award-winning autism book documents how they were able to face them head on. Families can use this book as a trail guide as they navigate the unfamiliar terrain autism creates.
In addition, this book offers advice ranging from educational programs to legal issues. As well as comprehensive assessment of the therapies and interventions that have worked for their three sons. Rather than leave future families in the dark to try and navigate autism, Three Times the Love provides a road map for all families to follow. Thus filled with practical advice and an extensive resource list, it is an must-have guide for any family whose been touched by autism.
Since their diagnosis in 2006, the cost to raise one (1) child with autism has escalated from $1.5 million to $2.4 million dollars over their entire lifetime.
