About this book:
A must-read for anyone with a neurodiverse family member, this is the story of the Avery family and how they have navigated the ups and downs of life with their autistic son, Aston. Sponsored by The Michael Barnard Charitable Trust and with each chapter illustrated with doodles from Aston himself, all the proceeds from sales of the book will be donated to four charities.
At the start of the family’s journey, Aston’s behaviour was extremely challenging and we follow the path of a child who banged his head continuously, ate inedible objects and had regular tantrums – as well as being unable to speak until the age of six. Aston is now a fine young man, dividing his time between his role as an Ambassador for a national autism charity and presenting his own radio show.
At once heartbreaking and uplifting, From A Tear to Here is a poignant and informative insight into the world of autism.
