"You have a healthy baby boy!" The words ring like church bells in the ears of new parents. But a child's life does not always follow the road map created in the parents' hearts. Small nagging signs give way to larger, scarier symptoms. Then the dreaded words: "Your child has autism." These words echo in their heads like a freight train blasting through their hopes and dreams. This is a moment that forever defines their family life. Despite the rapidly surging rate of autism, they feel alone. Questions flood their minds. They face an overwhelming search for educational, medical, and social information. Stars in Her Eyes is designed to help parents and teachers navigate the dizzying maze of autism. Dr. Barboa shares heartfelt narratives from parents and teachers who have gone before and paved the way. Each contributor gives practical advice from her own unique experiences. Stars in Her Eyes includes powerful yet light-hearted vignettes relating to each topic. The reader will feel that he is sitting in the same room with these authors, enjoying the enlightening conversation of those living with autism on a daily basis.

    This is a wonderful collaborative work which contains the wisdom of five mothers, and/or educators, who share their very personal experiences and possess the professional degrees which enable them to help families and teachers identify and understand the crucial Red Flags of Autism, any of which are essential to the diagnosis and treatment of children who should be placed on the Autism Spectrum Disorder, (ASD). Within these pages they tell of their own struggles of living with, coping with, and teaching ASD children. All of the contributing parents struggled at great length, and shed many tears for the futures of their children. Obtaining a correct diagnosis and treatment plan for their beloved ASD children, is a very lengthy and painful process, fraught with extreme challenges, especially in the case of identifying the special needs of the very young child. Although there are multiple theories of the causes of ASD, there is widespread agreement about the most crucial Red Flag.It is of the utmost importance to have early intervention! Each child is exquisitely unique in their needs, but all children with ASD will display some, (or many) of the Red Flags, the most important of which is the inability to make eye contact. There is a plethora of problems these children and their parents may be faced with. Elizabeth Obrey and Dr. Barboa have also co-authored many other fine books on the subject of ASD. They collaborated on the book, “Tic Toc-The Autism Clock-A Guide to Your 24/7 Parent Plan.” Dr. Barboa and Jan Luck write the exciting and ongoing series which begins with “Albert Is My Friend.” The “Albert” series is written to help children understand their brain disorders in a fun and intriguing fashion. Dr. Barboa has also co-authored the book, “Steps,” with Shelli Allen. All of these books should be vital additions to your library. I highly recommend, “Stars In Her Eyes-Navigating the Maze of Childhood Autism,” as an invaluable and transformational resource for all who are closely connected to a child they suspect of being ASD. All of these children can possess great potential, that neglected will bring disaster for the child and heartbreaking results for the parents. These authors not only bring hope to navigating these very special children through the grievous buffetings of the world, but also hope for the prospect of ending the chaos in the homes and the educational settings of these very special children. The resounding purpose of authors Barboa and Obrey is that every child should receive a standing ovation and live with stars in their eyes.

    Stars in Her Eyes is captivating and heart warming. I could not put it down. I ended reading this book with a new comprehension of not only the issues children on the autism spectrum deal with and services that are needed. I now have a new sense of compassion and appreciation for each child's uniqueness. This book is a positive informative and much needed tool for society at large. I now possess a new appreciation for the importance of collaboration and services that must me geared toward each child's needs from a reflective stance..Bravo for writing such a heartwarming yet informative book. I will recommend this book to colleagues, schools and parents. A must read for all.
