A story about a young person with autism...and what can happen when one dares to believe.
A book written by Dianne Winbanks that gives understanding and positive outcomes to families faced with the Autism Diagnosis. Dianne Winbanks (M.Ed) has studied extensively and educated students in a range of settings since starting her teaching career in 1986. Yet nothing prepared her for the learning curve that was required upon the birth of her twins, in 1995, one of whom was later diagnosed with autism and an intellectual disability.

Was just given a copy of the Lauren’s Creed to read and I could not put it down. I have a daughter the same age as Lauren who also has an ID. I also have a boy with special needs age 5, plus 2 other children. I could see the comparisons between my children and other children I know and the struggles that Lauren went through in accessing mainstream kinder and school. I hope I have the strength to stick to my guns in choosing the best school for my boy when the time arises.Catherine - Parent of a child with an ID
