Chantal Sicile-Kira ---Inspiration To All Special Needs Parents

Her name, Chantal, is the same as my daughter's. This stopped my web navigation at her site. The captivating content of her posts kept me there most of the evening. Her mission is "to empower parents and educators with the knowledge they need about autism spectrum disorders (ASD), including Asperger’s Syndrome (AS)."

At The Autism Advocate, she writes "Practical tips and musings on raising children and teens with autism" with interesting articles on sensory processing challenges, a topic of concern in our life.

The families of Special Needs children should be thankful that through her writing and speaking engagements, Chantal Sicile-Kira continues sharing her struggles and successes.

Career highlights of this remarkable mom:

*Award winning author, speaker, Autism expert and mom of two

* New book, her fourth, is 41 Things To Know About Autism (Turner, March 2010),

*Advocate for her autistic son, Jeremy, led to the Newsweek cover story “Growing up with Autism’

*Jeremy’s story featured in the MTV documentary True Life series was the recipient of a 2008 Voice Award.

*Bilingual, Chantal has worked in North America and Europe

*Chantal’s first book, Autism Spectrum Disorders: The Complete Guide to Understanding Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, and other ASD’s

*Her second book, Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum: A Parent’s Guide to the Cognitive, Social, Physical, and Transition Needs of Teenagers with Autism Spectrum Disorders
