Summary
When Dr James Best sold the family home to finance a trip to Africa, he hoped it would have far-reaching and life-changing results for his fourteen year old son Sam who had autism. James knew that Sam was the ideal age to make the journey far out of his comfort zone in where he would have to take on challenges and learn to navigate the unexpected, and that the shock of all these new experiences would change the neuroplasticity of Sam's brain and enable him to achieve what he hadn't been able to in a familiar environment. Their time in Africa was entertaining, nerve-wracking and challenging, but the results for Sam were stunning and tests proved the experiment was successful. This is an inspiring true story that gives hope to many families dealing with autism
