Sophomore Patrick King's Story Detailed in "Optimism For Autism"

OptimismMost of us can only imagine the challenges inherent in raising a special-needs child.  Susan King has collaborated with her son Patrick, a Pfeiffer University sophomore who attends school on both academic and athletic scholarships, about raising an autistic child. Patrick was diagnosed with autism at age five.
 
"Optimism for Autism" is the King's family story of faith and love and shows how Patrick has developed into a well-rounded person who achieved a 3.95 GPA his freshman year while competing on Pfeiffer's swim team in endurance events. He participates in both the 500 and 1,000-yard freestyle events. After graduation, Patrick hopes to design video games.
 
"I hope that the book will encourage parents and other autistic kids," Patrick said. "I want others to see the struggles and see that I persevered."
 
The Kings will be featured on Charlotte station WBTV Wednesday afternoon to talk about the book. They were also the subject of a feature article in Sunday's Salisbury Post.
 
"Optimism For Autism" is available at Amazon.
