Sandy Petrovic and David Petrovic MCA Interview Series Featured image

For this interview, we were able to sit down with not just one but two of our MCA honorees, Sandy Petrovic and David Petrovic! Sandy and David Petrovic are the mother and son duo that co-authored the Mom’s Choice Award-winning book, Expect a Miracle! Written from the separate perspectives of an autistic young adult and his mother, Expect a Miracle enables an intricate understanding of life with autism. It uniquely chronicles the challenges and victories of each developmental stage from toddlerhood through young adulthood and includes topics such as bullying, sensory challenges, transitioning, college preparation and success, and acclimation to employment. Inspiring hope and practical ideas, this book would be valuable to those with Autism Spectrum Disorder/Asperger’s, their parents and loved ones, and professionals who work with autistic individuals in any way.
