Parenting Your Child with Autism: Graeme Simsion on Work, Love, and Kids
Join Graeme Simsion at the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature for a talk full of Don and Rosie-related insight and laughter
19 January 2020
Brought to you by ExpatWoman.com - find out what went into the captivating and inspiring novel.
Author of the bestselling Rosie trilogy Graeme Simsion tries to answer the question, “What happens when your happy ever after isn’t the one you expected?” in the final installment, "The Rosie Result".
The couple and protagonists Don and Rosie return, this time as parents managing the twists and turns of everyday life. But this time the challenge they need to face is how to help their eleven-year-old autistic son, Hudson, make his way in the world.
Children aren't born with a manual, but thankfully we have books that can help show parents the way.
In the typical Graeme Simsion fashion we have come to know and love, the parents quickly adapt to their son's journey with the "Hudson project" - a throwback to Don's "Rosie project" from the first book in the trilogy.
Simsion's closure of the Rosie series subtly and successfully tackles some of the most significant topics on children of our times, from autism diagnosis, living with autism, childhood bullying, friendships, vaccination, and even sex education.
With the quirky characters of Don and Rosie, mums will also relate to the social conundrums of being a working parent, the struggles you may face in your career, and supporting your partner and child.
The Graeme Simsion: The Rosie Result session invites UAE fans of the series as well as parents whose child is on the autism spectrum to a morning discussion packed full of inspiration and insight.
