Overview

When a child is diagnosed with autism or Asperger's Syndrome, what a parent needs most is information and inspiration. After her son Jon was diagnosed with high-functioning autism in kindergarten, Ann Boushéy soon learned that, for her, knowledge was the key to peace. Written out of her own experience, this inspirational book provides the information that will empower other parents who find themselves in her situation, and inspire them in their quest for the right diagnosis and the right help for their child.

With a good dose of humor, she encourages parents in the day-to-day challenges they face in parenting a child with autism or Asperger's Syndrome. Short vignettes - "Chicken Nuggets for the Soul" - at the end of each chapter make the reader feel like sitting down with her, Parent to Parent, over a cup of coffee. After reading this book, parents will come away with a sense of empowerment and feeling that they are not alone, while professionals will gain a valuable and compassionate insight into the world of parenting a child on the autism spectrum.
