    One thought on “Brains, Trains & Video Games”

    1. I fully admit that I am not the parent of a spectrum child, but I am a teacher who has worked with a number of ASD kids. This book is a comprehensive insight into the life of a family with a child who is on the Autism Spectrum. However, it's not the best written thing I ever read. I would like it more if, like my high school English teachers used to stress, she would "show" instead of "tell" more of her information, and I wish someone had edited more carefully (She has used "complaisant" when sh [...]

    2. This book was raw- not written by professional talent, but by emotion and experience. There were times where the wording became repetitive, and several times where information was presented as new even though the author had already covered it. If you can get past this, then you should read this book.I personally don't have a child or family member who deals with Autism, but I have friends that do. Because of that, I wanted to read Ewan and Alicia's story, figuring it would be insightful. It was. [...]

    3. Please help Ms. Hart proofread her book! She has an interesting and captivating memoir which I failed to finish due to many grammar and spelling mistakes. She also recounted the same stories at multiple points in the book. I'd like to know how Ewan is doing now, but I can't bring myself to finish the book.

    4. In a previous book review I detailed why it may be that a person would pick up a non-fiction book on a special interest subject. In this case you either have autism in the family or have some professional interest in the condition, eg. a Special Ed. Teacher, instructor/therapist, etc. - relative of the author notwithstanding. Being a father of a child with ASD - my special interest in choosing to read this book - the kind of information I am looking for is very specifically the condition, how it [...]

    5. I found the subject matter very interesting. I'm a special ed teacher and while I don't work exclusively with autistic kids, the occasional autistic kid does make his/her way into my room and I find them very challenging and fascinating to work with. Like many other previous reviews, I found that this book needs some significant editing. There were too many repeated stories and a lot of grammatical and spelling errors. I also found that she spent way too many pages detailing her childhood, her h [...]

    6. I foundBrains, Trains, and Video Gamesby Alicia Hart to be a welcome change from the other books I have read on autism. As a mother and advocate of a young son with autism, Ms Hart writes from her heart, using her personal experience to share what she has learned about dealing with family, healthcare practitioners, and her autistic son, Ewan.I have a four year old grandson with autism. This book helped me to understand what my grandson, my daughter, husband, and their other children face in thei [...]

    7. Working in Early Intervention, books like this remind me about how each family is always at their own place with their child. Alicia is a huge advocate for EI and I respect all she has done. I appreciate her being so raw with her experiences through her journey. Reminds me to refresh the way I do my job. I will read her next book, but didn't love how they ended things, but I guess that's what you do to have people read the next one!

    8. A wonderful story about how it is on the inside of a family affected by autism. I felt the editor should have worked closer with this new author though. I found parts repeated often. Rereading s paragraph that was worded slightly different than it was on the opposite side of the page. One example was the author's daughter's name was Skye after an island was told in the beginning of the book and again at the end. This detracted from a great story that needs to be heard. Then the end was abrupt.

    9. As a teacher that's been teaching a while, but new to the EC world and to the many faces of ASD, I loved the insight this mom gives to their journey through the maze of life with a child with ASD. It gives me, as a teacher, some understanding about the spectrum-students I teachwhat their challenges look like outside the classroom I thoroughly enjoyed the book and how EASY it was to read. Can't wait for the next one!

    10. As an ASD parent there were so many familiar moments for me. It is a book that is need of a really good review by an editor. It became very disjointed and extremely repetitive. I don't think I will ever forget how much time he spent at Lab School each day! Way too much personal information. Would have loved to hear more about Ewan and less about everyone else. I did laugh, I did gasp and I did smile.

    11. I know this author personally. Her book is fascinatinga walk through her life as the mother of a fascinating autistic child and a "normal" child. You will enjoy the book, particularly if you have a vested interest in the subject matter. She needs an editor, though, as there are grammatical errors that can be highly distracting.

    12. As a small piece of the professional puzzle in autism treatment, this book is imperative to read. My only vice is that I would prefer to hear less about the family, and much more about the interactions with professionals and how that specifically altered their lives with autism. However, this book made valid claims, I wish only to have had concrete examples.

    13. The excruciating pain and the joy felt by parents of autistic children are poignantly described by Ms. Hart. Her fighting for Ewan embodied the spirit of the tiger mother. A detailed account of the medical and emotional turbulence felt by Ewan and the whole family. A promising writer who writes with emotion and can explain medical terms to us regular folks.

    14. I thought this was a good book; I really admired how the author became such an advocate for her child.I did not like how it ended. Apparently, there will be more books, but this ending was not a good place to leave the story.

    15. First admission: I don't have a child on the spectrumSecond admission: I couldn't finish this bookThird admission: I erased my review because what is in my head isn't coming out right on paper.

    16. Alicia Hart's book Brains, Trains & Video Games was written from her personal experiences as a mother of a child with autism. It was fascinating to read about her family as well as the interactions with various professionals. Very emotional and insightful.

    17. Mystery of autismHow I admire this mother's compassion and persistence in trying to unravel the mysteries of her son's affliction. The book only covers 4 years but it seems like more because of the difficulties encountered one after another.

    18. Definitely a heartfelt in-depth account of life with Autism, but EXTREMELY slow. I found myself skimming through sections because I was getting bored. Definitely will not read the next book. Preferred watching Temple Grandin.

    19. No sugar coating here. You can feel the struggle of this mother as she deals with this young mans diagnosis and the people that enter his life. Very interesting when discussing the machine and food chaining.

    20. A very good accounting of a family working to continue being a family while raising an autistic child to fulfill his potentia.I enjoyed this and would recommend it.The book is well written and interesting.

    21. I suspect that if you don't have an interest in autism, you may not find this to be quite as riveting as I did but even if you have an interest in children's development, its so well worth the read. Keep the tissues handy though

    22. Such a wonderful tale of a Mother's perseverance and love of her child with autism. This woman does NOT give up! Loved it!
