The name Catherine Maurice is a pseudonym. The author is, in real life, the mother of three children, two of whom were diagnosed as autistic. Her best-known book, "Let Me Hear Your Voice: A Family's Triumph over Autism," was published in 1994. It is an uplifting and hopeful account of how her family used a behavior modification method to treat their autistic children. The process, devised by O. Ivar Lovaas, a psychologist in California, seeks to disrupt the repetitive patterns of behavior that so many autistic children exhibit. Maurice's book, although positive and uplifting, cautions readers that this type of therapy works with only about 50% of the children who are treated using it. Nevertheless, both of Maurice's children have fully recovered and are now considered "normal." Catherine Maurice is also the editor of a book entitled "Behavioral Intervention for Young Children with Autism: A Manual for Parents and Professionals."
