Paula Lynn Johnson who is a parent writes a thank you note to Prof. Thomas Sorwell. Prof Sorwell’s book- Late talking children – helped Paula fight continuous claims that her twins suffered from autism:
Most people know Thomas Sowell from his political writing. I came by Thomas Sowell differently: My kids didn’t start talking until they were well past the age of three. During those non-verbal months, plenty of parents, teachers, doctors, and others suggested my twins were autistic. Sowell’s book, Late Talking Children, was a reasoned counterpoint to that suggestion, not to mention my lifeline to sanity.
This lengthy post (and it IS lengthy!) is for any parents or grandparents with little ones that don’t hit their growth milestones on time, raising the question of autism. I sincerely hope it helps.
Anyone out there know Thomas Sowell? If so, thank him for me. Tell him he’s prevented at least one nervous breakdown in New Jersey.
Superb heart warming stuff..
Prof Sorwell is no small fish in economics (though hardly known in the so called mainstream economics of today). But it is such contribution which matters more than anything else..
