Courage, insight, and endurance are the watchwords for all parents who are coping with an autistic child. I’m Not Alice, I’m Alice is a combination of enlightenment and example for anyone who wishes to understand and respond to the complexities of autism. The story relates a family’s experience and their struggle with the complications that arise for each of them. Author Beverly Tucker, a retired clinical psychotherapist, felt compelled to write this story after observing the difficulties, challenges and decisions that a real family faced. She wrote this book to honor their effort, attempting to understand and even celebrating the differences of their autistic child.
Dr. Tucker commented, “This book is first and foremost a tribute to all who, on a daily basis, confront the challenges and rewards of living with autism. It is no intended as a scientific treatise, a textbook or a ‘how to’ deal with autism. It is an appeal for awareness of this mystifying disorder, the need for critical research and acceptable solutions for autistic children who become autistic adults.”
