Ava Goes to the Dentist” is a social story from a child’s point of view. Ava was diagnosed with autism at the age of two-and-a-half. The book is the first of a series of books Alicia and Ava have planned, on various outings through the eyes of a child with autism.

Alicia’s philosophy for a life well lived is, to be present in every relationship, live with compassion and practice humility.

    Love to hear stories of other people that have autistic kids. I have to get these books. My 2 autistic kids would love them. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to more books. There is so much to write about with special needs kids. I also live in Antioch.
