Publisher's Summary

The Thinking Moms’ Revolution (TMR) is a group of 23 moms (and one awesome dad) from Montana to Malaysia who all have children with developmental disabilities. Initially collaborating online about therapies, biomedical intervention, alternative medicine, special diets, and doctors on the cutting edge of treatment approaches to an array of chronic and developmental disabilities, such as autism, sensory processing disorders, food allergies, ADHD, asthma, and seizures, they've come together into something far more substantial.
Suspecting that some of the main causes may be overused medicines, vaccinations, environmental toxins, and processed foods, they began a mission to help reverse the effects. In the process, they became a tight-knit family dedicated to helping their kids shed their diagnoses.
Here, collected by Helen Conroy and Lisa Joyce Goes, are the stories of their fights to recover their kids from autism and related disorders. With each chapter written by a different TMR member, they share how they discovered one another, what they learned from one another, and why it’s important to have close friends who understand what it's like to parent a child with special needs. You'll read about their experiences, and learn how their determination and friendships have become a daily motivation for parents worldwide.
The complete list of narrators includes Amanda Carlin, Nicol Zanzarella, and Abby Craden.

Audible Editor Reviews

Every one of these true stories of parents who took matters into their own hands when faced with the frustration and bewilderment that come with raising developmentally delayed children are heartrendingly raw but they reward the listener with wit, hope, and inspiration.
The audiobook performances capture the despair and rage that give way to the powerful love and determination of these parents, rising to life's challenges, triumphing in the act of telling their stories, and building a community of support to light the way down the road to recovery.

Little Useful Information

This book offers little to no useful information for parents with a child on the spectrum. It is a collection of life stories (some sob stories, some not) from mothers who all subscribe to the 'vaccines did it' theory. Very repetitive.

If you are looking for actual tips or recommendations to use with your child, this book is not for you.

I WAS COMPLETELY INSPIRED!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

YES!!! This book is for everyone, whether Autism is a part of your life or not! So informative!


What other book might you compare The Thinking Mom's Revolution to and why?

None that I can think of.


Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

There were so many!!! Every single story was so well written!


What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

I wrote down so much information while listening. I will be looking into all of the ideas they talked about for treatment and therapy. My daughter was diagnosed almost a year ago today, and I had no idea about a lot of this stuff. She is in ABA and several other therapies, but as far as Homeopath and Biomedical treatments, I really didn't know much about. The thing that really got me though, was knowing that I am not alone. I am not a part of a support group, nor know anyone else that has Autism, so listening to this was so eye opening to know how many people are going through this same fight. It was very emotional. I cried and laughed. Thank all of you for writing this book. Thank you so much.
