Book Review and Giveaway: Alanis’ Daily Routine. Ends Dec 27th

About the Book: This story is about Alanis Dior Newell. Alanis was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at the age of two and a half years old. She has worked very hard to show her family she is just like any other child. Alanis is trying to deal with her challenges with a day to day routine. In her story, Alanis shows you how she overcame some of her difficult challenges that she deals with each day. Alanis does show some emotions and feelings, but in an animated kind of way. Alanis family is very proud of her because she has come a very long way. There are many families and children faced with challenges and diversities, who can relate to Alanis’ story.

My Review: This is a true story of Alanis who was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder when she was two and a half years old. Alanis is now thirteen years old. Her mother who is the author of this book gives us a daily routine on how Alanis is dealing with challenges relating to autism. From getting upset, school bus not arriving on time, Alanis’ gestures and little quirks to finding comfort in her bedroom, visiting the doctors, receiving awards in school for her reading, spelling and writing skills and many more. I recommend this book for anyone who has an autistic child in their life.

Note: The Autism Society recognizes that families and individuals living with an autism spectrum disorder have a range of issues and needs. Our National Conference addresses the range of issues affecting people with autism including early intervention, education, employment, behavior, communication, social skills, biomedical interventions and others, across the entire lifespan.

  1. Alanis’ Daily Routine would be an excellent book for my grandson Daemion who also has Autism Spectrum Disorder. He will be four next month but he still doesnt talk but he is going to preschool and is making great strides in learning routines. I would be very proud to give him this valuable story. Thank you for your giveaways. God bless you and your loved ones and have a Merry Christmas!

  2. I would definitely refer everyone I knew who was touched by Autism to read this book. Only from other peoples examples and trials do we really ever learn anything. Another wonderful giveaway with a book that touches us and teaches us. Happy Holidays.
