Meet Summer Nauss, a mom to two boys and one daughter with autism. Her journey began when her youngest was diagnosed with a neurological disorder, and she has since met countless parents of autistic children in her quest for knowledge and understanding. As a dedicated researcher, Summer continuously learns about autism in order to provide the best possible support for her precious child.
Rabbit Ears to Cable: Autism Moms account
This morning, Summer was happy to have the opportunity to stop by one of our Morning Break events and discuss her latest literary masterpiece. Her book, “Rabbit Ears to Cable: Journal of Our Autism Family”, is not just another ordinary read. It’s her own heartfelt expression, delving into the gritty and challenging realities of her family’s journey with autism. A sleep-deprived mom, constantly on the move, navigating the tumultuous path of raising an autistic child. Her writing oozes candor, laying bare a rollercoaster ride of emotions and experiences inherent in being a parent to a child on the spectrum.
One of the takeaways from her book is the universality of Autism – it reminds us that autism knows no borders, social status, or cultural barriers. It;s on any part of the world and impacts families from all walks of life, regardless of race, religion or economic standing. Summer’s account also serves as a call to action, urging parents of autistic children to break the silence and talk about the often taboo, less glamorous aspects of life with autism. Her words are a rallying cry for more open and honest conversations within families dealing with this complex disorder.
Nauss hopes for her memoir to shine a light on the complex and unpredictable journey of raising a child with autism while simultaneously serving as a source of inspiration for parents seeking moments of joy amidst the struggles.
