HarperCollins: HarperCollins Publishers, 2002. Smiling at Shadows is the story of Junee and Rod Waites and their son, Dane. Junee and Rod have journeyed with their son for 26 years: from the first anxious hours of Dane's birth, through childhood, adolescence and as he has blossomed into a talented and caring adult, with a valued place in his community. Theirs is a remarkable story, because Dane is different. As a baby, Dane didn't smile at his parents, or meet their gaze &ndash; Dane smiled at the shadows of moving trees. The movement of the leaves distracted and comforted him in a way that neither toys nor physical contact could. Dane was 5 years old when Junee, reading a book about Autism, recognised that Dane had the classic symptoms of this pervasive developmental disorder. From this point on, the joys and the heartaches of meeting Dane in his world, and drawing him into theirs, frame Junee and Rod's daily life. They have never wavered in their belief that Dane's abilities can be nurtured or in their commitment to offer him every experience possible. Junee and Rod's family life has been enriched by their experience. And they have learnt to smile at the shadows too.<p>. Paperback. New.
