This book is dedicated to the “students” that I constantly visualized in my mind as I developed this book—the bright and caring family that surround my life, including my wife, parents, siblings, in-laws, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents.

This book is also dedicated to the parents, families, practitioners, and researchers who are diligently fighting to rescue children from autism spectrum and bipolar disorders.

This book is dedicated to my key inspirational sources: my incredible wife, Mayme (I still wake-up everyday with a smile in my heart knowing I am married to her), and my “fabulous five” children: Michael, Victoria, Alex, Luke, and Elayna (each one is a hero to me).
