AUTISM: A MOTHER-DAUGHTER LOVE STORY on the Dr. Theresa Nicassio Show (TheresaNicassio.com)
Reminiscent of her own story defying beliefs about what is possible, Dysnomia tells a tale of a young girl Layla who sets on an adventure to prove that girls can conquer danger and mystery just as well as boys can.

Defying Beliefs About Autism

Despite being diagnosed with very low functioning Autism at 3 years old, Jenny has blossomed. Believing in herself and the importance of pursuing her dreams, she is passionate about inspiring others to do the same. Now a high-functioning adult in her mid-20’s, Jenny is living proof and a role model to show others that “Autism is not a death sentence but a rich fulfilled life sentence.”

Dysnomia

Dysnomia tells a tale of a young girl Layla who sets on an adventure to prove that girls can conquer danger and mystery just as well as boys can. After being sent down into a mystifying underworld by the devious Nilerm, Layla and her friends must overcome many challenges in order to return home safely.

“The label for Jenny should have been the best is yet to come as a story is not written until the author writes it, and Jenny is a great writer.”

Takeaway Message from Janet

“There is a generalized stigma box that still surrounds Autism and I wrote my book not only to reach out to the Autistic community but the general public as well. We need to enlighten and engage people by sharing stories like Jenny’s journey with Autism as she and many others are living proof that one with Autism can live a rich fulfilled life and follow their dreams and attain their goals.”
