Dancing with Max: A Mother and Son Who Broke Free by by Emily Colson, with Charles Colson

When Emily Colson’s son, Max, was diagnosed with autism, her friend said, “God works through these children. They are a gift. Max is a gift.” Consequently, Colson refused to allow labels like “noncompliant” and “unteachable” to define Max. As she explains in Dancing with Max, she rejected the world’s “Can’t Do” list for him, and, with God’s help, met him where he was and joined him in his interests. In the process, Max became a teacher to many, including his mother and his grandfather, Charles Colson.
