How To Help Your Autistic Spectrum Child is filled with practical tips and advice for parents, including:
- Strategies for dealing with day-to-day scenarios such as difficulties with eating, sleeping and time keeping
- Coping emotionally and getting support as a parent
- Preparing for school, including advice on relationships with teachers and classmates and weighing up mainstream school against other options
- Information about programmes and schemes to help ASD children
However, awareness is one thing, understanding and tolerance are quite different. Things are still very difficult for many parents of children on the autistic spectrum – and that is where the advice in this book comes in.”
My 3 ASD children cover all different parts of the wide spectrum, even as much as 8 years post diagnosis I still don't know it all. It can affect our family and relationship so much, I especially enjoyed the chapter that focuses on how ASD affects these aspects. I also enjoyed communication chapter as most of you know Miss S is predominately non verbal.
I would definitely recommend this book to other ASD families it is packed full of useful information and tips. The book is available for £12.99 from White Ladder Press, just hit the clickable link above to purchase your copy.
