description -

Hope alternates with discouragement in this true story of the family of William Christopher ("Father Mulcahy" of M*A*S*H ) struggling to rear an autistic son. Young Ned's problems emerge in the narrative just as they did in real life--gradually, confusingly (why was he counting to 40 at age two but apparently oblivious when people spoke to him?). Shifting diagnoses and ongoing efforts to find the right school, the right medication, the right therapy never quite do the trick. Yet the narrative is touching, engrossing, informative--even ultimately upbeat, given the Christophers capacity to hang in there through it all.
