There is a lot of information that comes your way following an ASD diagnosis,” Flynn said. “It is my hope that this book brings comfort and understanding to children and parents alike.

After 42 years of silently struggling, pediatrician Rochelle Caruso Flynn was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

In her new book, “Floppy Lop-Ears Tries to Get ‘Off the Spectrum,’” Flynn combines her professional and personal experiences with ASD in an entertaining and educational book for children with the disorder and their parents.

“As a child recently diagnosed with ASD, it can be scary to try and understand what the diagnosis means and how it’s going to affect your life,” Flynn said. “Floppy Lop-Ears’ story is unique in that it explains ASD in a child-friendly way and teaches readers the positive aspects of having the disorder as well.”

Flynn also offers “insider tips” for parents and caretakers on how to approach people with ASD, especially those who are non-verbal or unable to descriptively share their feelings and experiences.

“There is a lot of information that comes your way following an ASD diagnosis,” Flynn said. “It is my hope that this book brings comfort and understanding to children and parents alike.”

About the author
Rochelle Caruso Flynn grew up in a Philadelphia suburb and with much perseverance, achieved her dream of being a pediatrician specializing in pediatric emergency medicine. Despite this, Flynn always felt that she had yet to find her "perfect" niche in her career and in life.

With her husband’s encouragement, Rochelle decided to make a career change to general pediatrics. Then, in May 2013, her world once again turned upside down when she was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome (now ASD-mild). Rather than providing relief as the explanation for many of her life's challenges, Flynn now found herself reevaluating her entire life from this new perspective.

Flynn currently resides in San Antonio with her husband, two children, and (much to her husband's dismay) a large and growing menagerie of furry, scaly, shelled and fluffy critters.
