A Well-Fed Heart: Autistic to Artistic draws upon the experience of its author, Leah Follett, who learned from her own challenges in trying to maintain wellness, to find ways to work with-and not against-her own nature. She extends this approach for reflections on nurturing her own children.

Parents and others who care for children with Autism, ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder, food intolerances and allergies, skin conditions, and digestive issues will find in the pages of A Well-Fed Heart the hard-won insights that can help a family seek healing and wholeness.

A Well-Fed Heart: Autistic to Artistic presents accessible, amply researched, and family-tested advice and counsel for families who desire to seek health for all of their members.

“I wrote this book for the person I was when I started this journey. I was lost, defeated, confused and lacking a sense of self appreciation, power and purpose for the person I was and the the children that I was gifted.” – Leah Follett
