Les de Villiers

Today one out of every 150 children born in the United States is diagnosed with this baffling and terrifying condition—a dramatic increase over a decade ago when incidence rate was estimated at 1 in 2,500.This is the story of strikingly beautiful Lauren Elizabeth de Villiers who is autistic and lives in a world of her own. Even though it was written by Lauren’s father from the viewpoint of someone who draws strength from his faith as a Christian to cope with the challenges posed by their daughter’s condition, it is aimed at everyone who has to deal with autism:  Jew, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, agnostic and atheist—men and women of all faiths and non-faiths. It is the story of one family’s odyssey into autism. It was written in the belief that  the growing number of parents who have to deal with autism might benefit in a practical and spiritual sense from her story. It is also intended to awaken the broader community to the importance of spending more time and money for research into the causes and possible cures of this dreaded condition. Les de Villiers has written books about politics, business, conservation and travel, published in South Africa, Europe and the United States. He considers this book as the most important one he has written.
