QMD is pleased to announce a new book written
by Mark Druckmiller and JD Marhevko
This book is written by very determined and overworked parents of their son, Adam, an autistic child. Over the years since their son’s diagnosis of autism they have worked on treating the disease and the symptoms of autism by applying improvement processes to the situation. They have called their book A Sample Size of One based on what they know and what they have done with their son only. It is not that the specific treatments and things they do work exactly the first time, but the process is where they go and methodically do things, examine the results, and continue with the next steps…or not. The book explains things they have done with Adam (chronologically), with themselves, and the processes they have used to help treat his disease.
