"Highly Recommended! This documentary is especially inspiring for parents of autistic children. It is perfectly suited for public health care collections." -Booklist
When Robert Parish's son, Jack Michael, was diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, he decided to do something that would help shatter the myths and misinformation about ASD. The award-winning broadcaster/producer produced two hour-long documentaries (Come Back Jack and Come Back Jack 2002) about his family's journey that have been broadcast nationally on PBS. Based on viewer reaction to these programs, Parish then produced this program to feature interview segments, as well as clinical and educational advice not included in the first two documentaries. This multi-award-winning program explores the origins, diagnosis and treatment options for children with ASD; it features experts Patricia Manning-Courtney, M.D., Director of The Kelly O'Leary Center for Pervasive Developmental Disorders at Children's Hospital in Cincinnati, OH; Arnold Miller, Ph.D., founder of the Language and Cognitive Development Center (LCDC) in Boston, MA; Paul Callahan, Psy.D., Director of Operations, at The Language and Cognitive Development Center, Boston, MA; and includes interviews with Jack's siblings (Graham, Ryan and Courtney) and his mother, Diane. Produced by Robert Parish. 06/09DE SCA 30 min.
