Summary
Annotation This comprchensive and readable guide answers the questions commonly asked by parents and carers following a diagnosis of autism, and discusses the challenges that can arise in home life, education and socialising. The authors cover a wide variety of therapies and approaches to autism, providing clear, unbiased information so that families will be able to evaluate different options for themselves. Throughout, the emphasis is on home and family life, and the everyday difficulties encountered by families of autistic children. Caring for a Child with Autism is an informative handbook written in association with the National Autistic Society, written for parents with a recently diagnosed autistic child. This is a thorough introduction to autistic spectrum disorders, to be consulted time and time again as new questions arise. Book jacket
