Let Me Hear Your Voice


She was a beautiful doelike child, with an intense graceful fragility. In her first year, she picked up words, smiled and laughed, and learned to walk. But then Anne Marie began to turn inward. And when her little girl lost some of the words she had acquired, cried inconsolably, and showed no interest in anyone around her, Catherine Maurice took her to doctors who gave her a devastating diagnosis, autism. In their desperate struggle to save their daughter, the Maurices plunged into a medical nightmare of false hopes, miracle cures, and infuriating accusations that Anne Marie’s autism was their fault. Finally, she was saved by an intensive behavioral therapy. This book is a mother’s illuminating account of how one family triumphed over autism.
