Softcover book Attics of the Mind: The Story of a Mother and Her Special Son
This is the true story of one mother’s journey in raising her child with mental and physical challenges. Dr. Lustig openly expresses her innermost doubts, emotional pain, coping strategies and strengths she developed as she faced dealing with her child’s needs within his social and educational environment. It is also the story of the people she met along the way, the families of special children and the children themselves.
Purchase the DVD: Autism and a Family’s Commitment
This half hour program openly recounts a family’s relationship over the years with an autistic brother/son as seen through their now adult eyes. Many documentaries focus on the life of the autistic family member but in this video we focused on the other family members’ experiences and emotions. Dr. Lustig believes that its importance lies in the significant role families play as the mainstay of vulnerable children. “Autism and a Family’s Commitment” is the companion video to Dr Laura Lustig’s book “Attics of the Mind: The Story of a Mother and Her Special Son.”. Dr Lusitg lives in Connecticut and is the mother of Jesse, the subject of this program. Her views are very interesting as they come from a mother who happens to be a Doctor of Psychology, rather than a doctor who happens to be a mother.
