The Sound of a Miracle is Annabel Stehli's riveting story of her daughter Georgiana's triumphant over autism. Thanks to an intervention called Berard Auditory Integration Training, she went from autistic and functionally retarded to gifted. Berard Auditory Integration Training cured Georgiana's painful hearing, her most distressing symptom, and made it possible for her to emerge from autism, enjoy communication and to excel academically.

When mothers of autistic children from all over the country contacted Annabel Stehli and told her their stories, she put them in touch with one another, formed The Parents' Network, and inspired them to do as she had done: to fight for their children with diagnoses including Autism, Pervasive Developmental Delay (PDD), Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), Hyperactivity, Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD), Dyslexia, and Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. There are many Georgianas now, ready to take their place among their peers without a label. The interest sparked by Sound of a Miracle resulted in the founding of the Georgiana Organization and has contributed to the public awareness and support of auditory training as a treatment option.

Sound of a Miracle was first printed in 1991 by Doubleday of New York. A second printing has been released in 1996 through The Georgiana Organization. This book can be ordered through The Counseling Center. The Counseling Center is certified in the Berard method of auditory integration training.
