Being Max's Mom
Being Max's Mom is a story about love and one mother's determination to help her son. The story is raw and honest, coming straight from the heart. Miller provides sound advice, uses humor and is uncensored when describing how she negotiated an autism diagnosis while being in extreme poverty and uninsured. Despite his earlier diagnosis of being "unteachable," Miller's son thrived. Her story provides the reader with hope and reaffirms that children like her son are just different, not less.
Rebecca Miller's son Max published his first book in 2014 entitled, Hello, My Name is Max and I Have Autism. His book describes what life is like on the autism spectrum via art and essays. Being Max's Mom is the companion reader to this text.
