Overview

One in 150 children is born with ASD: :Autistic Spectrum Disorder. My wife and I between us have parented 3 autistic kids. We know from experience that the diagnosis of autism can be one of the most frightening things a parent can hear. Like we did, you have consulted with specialists, begun pouring over the literature and scoured the internet for information. You will have read of causes, therapies and treatments.
And in the end there is no cure. Only strategies to deal with problems and ways to cope. For many, especially those of you who have children recently diagnosed, things can seem bleak and depressing.
I'm here to tell you that this need not be the case. Life with an autistic child can be every bit as rewarding and fulfilling as with a normal child. This book is not about problem solving, treatments, or therapies.
It is about joy.
