Overview

The neurological disorder called autism has produced more questions than answers in medical science - and more misguided notions than actual facts about the realities of living with an autistic person.

If you suspect - or know - that you are a parent of a child with autism, you face a unique challenge and set of concerns: Can my child's condition improve? Am I somehow responsible for his autism? Will she be able to interact with other children? How can I prepare my child for adulthood?

A Parent's Guide to Autism, presented in a question-and-answer format that most efficiently addresses your concerns, offers clear and reassuring advice on:

  • Symptoms and types of autism - what to look for as your child develops
  • Possible causes of autism, including up-to-date, vital information on genetic links
  • Therapy options, and the pros and cons of sensory integration, audial, physical, and Daily Life therapies, as well as educational approaches
  • Treatment Alternatives and warnings against inappropriate medications
  • Facilitated Communication - how it has helped children with autism express themselves
  • Choosing a school that sees your child as an individual, not a label.
Plus: information on insurance and legal rights of people with autism; a complete network of foundations and their publications; and listings of books on living with autism - some written by parents, some by people with autism who relate their personal experiences.
