NEW YORK, Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Faith Parker initially thought her son, Hunter, was deaf, because, by the age of 2, he'd not uttered a peep, and failed to respond to her when she tried to get his attention - instead covering his ears, screaming. Her dearest friend and confidant, Frank, advised her to seek professional help.
During the summer, Faith painstakingly meets professionals to collect documentation for Hunter's diagnosis. Fired from her administrative position for being chronically late and under-performing, Faith haphazardly finds temporary employment as a carpenter's assistant, a dog walker, and even the title of landlord. The evaluation from professionals concludes that Hunter is in the autistic spectrum. In this dramatic novel of devotion, love and determination, "Crowd Pleaser -- Autism: The Effect on the Parent" (published by Trafford Publishing), Veronica Gillotti pens a tender story of the challenges faced by a single mother who meets the world of autism spectrum through the eyes of her young boy. Overwhelmed by the diagnosis, angered by the dog walker, and distressed by her roommate, Faith searches for Hunter's biological father. Unfortunately, he is in a supervised time-out. Frank and Faith work with Hunter on his education and therapy and delight in his progress learning words and basking in being the center of everyone's attention in this fun-to-read glimpse into one woman's challenges - and rewards.
