An intimate family portrait showing one dad’s determined quest to find the right therapies, the right doctors, and even the right words to describe his son.
When their son was just 17 months old, Erik and Jennie Linthorst suspected something was not quite right. Experts and therapists told them their son was autistic. Sort of. Maybe. Some called him autistic-like. Others said he was not autistic at all.
With his parents still seeking a clear diagnosis, Graham was launched into a program of behavioral therapy. Speech therapy. Occupational therapy.
Soon after therapy began, Erik and Jennie noticed something else: the treatment he was getting did not seem to be on target. Erik took on the conundrum confronting many parents of kids who are “mildly disordered.” Handed a frenzy of diagnosis, what should the treatment be?
