Press Release

updated: Jan 29, 2019

Recent release ‘To Kiss the Blarney Stone’ from Covenant Books author Kate Curry is a heroic portrayal of one woman’s battle with the educational and health care systems to get professional help for her late-diagnosed autistic son, following her journey of untold frustrations, tested personal strength, and zero regrets that eventually led to the award of seeing her son through college.

Kate Curry, a nurse and loving mother, has completed her new book “To Kiss the Blarney Stone”: a heartfelt true story of a mother’s persistence.

Kate shares, “Autism—it is a spectrum. It is something I knew nothing about. My son Brenden was diagnosed late, at age six. Even getting the evaluation was a hundred-to-one odds. But I was a mother first, and I found the people who would help my son be the best he could be. It was the hardest thing to do. From learning the signs to understanding about early Child Find, to figuring out where and what was that appropriate education. Getting that education seemed to be as delayed as my child. Time was not a friend, but I found miracles all around us.

Through years of speech and language, occupational and physical therapies, the delineation became visible. Learning all I could about finding the resources and support to show progress, I continued to follow my intuition and persist for answers. If I heard of something that was a success, I sought it out. I made it happen. I went outside the school system for evaluations and therapy. When I realized his vision was an issue, I found the doctors to help and then was able to transfer that into his Individual Education Program (IEP). I believed and functioned as I was an equal member of the IEP team.”
