    1 thought on “The Siege: A Family's Journey Into the World of an Autistic Child”

    1. This is my favorite personal account of what it is like to live with autism. Written from the parent's perspective, it shows great insight and appreciation to what the child is experiencing. Perfect for parents and professionals who work with children on the autism spectrum.

    2. This book, the story of one family’s attempt to break through what seems to them to be their child’s utter indifference to them, is remarkable both for the mother’s story of her own efforts to engage her child and for her account of her attempts to get help from a community of professionals who seem as baffled as she is by her child’s behavior.Her progress with her daughter is very slow Elly ( the pseudonym for Jessica Park) makes progress at her own pace and she notices and responds to [...]

    3. I'm reminded of the adage that writers write the book that they desperately want to read but cannot find. Clara Park's daughter Jessy (called Elly in the book) was diagnosed autistic at a time when experts used the term interchangeably with psychosis and schizophrenia, and blamed over-educated mothers for their children's condition. Unable to find professional help or support, Park used trial and error as well as ideas gleaned from the autobiography of Annie Sullivan (who reached another unreach [...]

    4. Books about autism or brain abnormalities of any stripe fascinate me. This is one of the best of the many books I have read about autism. Originally published in 1967, "The Siege" is credited as one of the first books to allay the blame that parents, especially mothers, were made to feel at having caused their child's autism through their cold detachment. The author's detailed reporting of the characteristics and often strange (and humorous) behavior of an autistic child and the rather limited m [...]

    5. This was the book that sustained me through the first few years of raising my son with autism. The bibliography pointed a way for me and guided me through those early days, when autism was still a low incidence disability, 1986. I was later lucky enough to meet Clara and Jessy and thank her for being, unknowingly, my mentor and salvation in the darkest days of my life. Exiting Nirvana, came at a time that my son was preparing to transition to adult services and again Clara pointed a way, shortly [...]

    6. I loved this book, as I did the successor (Exiting Nirvana, written 30 years later). Autism is a fascinating disorder, and this pair of books gives tremendous insight into how autism affects an individual and the surrounding family. At the time (as with now) there was very little known about autism so it is really amazing to learn what the author and her family did instinctively to draw Elly out, as well as how difficult it was to find the right support from the medical/psychiatric fields. Highl [...]

    7. Przepiękna podróż w zamknięty świat autystycznego dziecka. Ze szczególną dbałością ukazana walka matki w przełamywaniu barier i dążeniu do wyłomu w murach szczelnie zamkniętej "umysłowej cytadeli". Świadectwo siły miłosci, odwagi i cierpliwości w próbach osiągnięcia "normalnbości" pomimo ówczesnych kowenansów psychiatrii. Polecam:)

    8. Rather dated now, from the days when it was assumed that autism was psychological rather than neurological, but in the 1960s this must have been a revolutionary look at how to increase communication with an autistic child from a parent's point of view, and it's still very touching.

    9. This book was depressing reading, as it is set back in the days when autism was considered a psychosis. The family struggles to find solutions, searches desperately for professional help, and has to fend off the blame that used to be attached to being the parent of an autistic child.

    10. One of the greatest books I've read on Autistic Spectrum Disorder, written by a mother of an autistic child. I read it because of my involvement with the elementary special education program, but certainly any parent with a child suffering this disorder would identify with and learn from it.
