Dog Ear Publishing releases “Our Wild Card” by Sarah F. Montz.

an inspirational portrait of the effects an Autistic child has on a family, positive and negative.

Sarah Montz knew that her middle son, Travis, was different from his older brother, but she had no idea how much her life would change when he was diagnosed at the age of 3 with Pervasive Developmental Disorder- Not Otherwise Specified. With this diagnosis, the family set off on their journey through physical, behavioral, occupational and speech therapies, relayed in this new book. Their beloved child was labeled and judged by people unfamiliar with the diagnosis, and Sarah found herself increasingly overwhelmed as she tried to manage her three sons and the myriad of appointments required to keep Travis on track.

With love and support from her family, Sarah finally came to terms with the diagnosis and the ups and downs that came with it. She shares the joy that Travis’s laughter brings to the household, and the terror and anxiety when his disorder leads him to sneak out of the house, wandering the neighborhood unbeknownst to her. With tremendous hard work and determination, Travis has come further than his therapists ever thought he could. “Our Wild Card” is an inspirational portrait of the effects an Autistic child has on a family, positive and negative.

Author Sarah Montz’s anecdotes will make readers laugh and cry in turn, and potentially lead to a new understanding of this baffling disorder. Montz attended Park University and received a bachelor’s degree in business management. She now lives outside of Dayton, Ohio, with her family. This is her first book.
