Overview

What Every Parent Must Know About Their Autistic Child...

Autism is a complex disorder, and there really is no one singular way to discuss or define it. But there is one thing that is true across the board when it comes to autism: the number of questions parents have.

I know what it's like to be unsure and worried about what to do for the best for a loved one with autism. I know all too well about the many challenges and frustrations that you are facing with your autistic child.

When my son was diagnosed with autism in 2009, I scoured every book and website I could find looking for answers. And for every question answered, there always seemed to be three more questions related to the original, and on and on.

The "specialists" who were supposed to help me told me very little about all the options available. So, I searched high and low for methods and practical advice I could put in place, but struggled to find anything useful.

Many resources I found were either poorly written, contained out-of-date information, written for doctors or medical practitioners, or only gave part of the information that I needed.

I'm sure you've found the same. Come across similar frustrations on your journey to understand autism.

For me, the only option available was to find the answers myself...

I spent many days, weeks and months researching proven techniques to really understand and manage autism.

Fortunately you don't have to spend countless hours searching and verifying information like I did. I wrote this guide to cover a lot of the basic questions parents have, and a few you may have never thought of.

If you'd like to have a better understanding of the reasons behind your autistic child's behaviors, so you can help your child more and take some of the pressure off you and the rest of your family then this is the guide for you.

Here are just some of the things you will learn in "Raising Children with Autism: 100 Things Every Parent of an Autistic Child Must Know":

    When I read the first paragraph of the introduction for this boo

    When I read the first paragraph of the introduction for this book, I immediately realized that this author has a realistic view of autism. That alone gave me hope since it clearly isn’t one of those books with the “discovery” of a “cure” for this incurable condition. Didn’t take me long to understand the author has great advice to share from experience that will hopefully make our journey of coping with autism easier. Since caring for my autistic niece is so very time consuming at this stage, we especially appreciate how it is arranged into 100 questions and answers that are easy to read a little at a time or return to as needed further down the road.

    This book is very informative, even if you don't have a child who has autism. Each chapter of the book is easy to find and answers specific questions in about a page. If you're looking for an answer for something in particular, it's definitely easy to find the answer in the table of contents. The book also doesn't ever mention that autism is something terrible and the child should be punished for doing things that help them cope with situations. I know a few books and therapists that treat the children with autism as misbehaving children throwing tantrums and that can be harmful to the child. The book also gives methods that may help you with your children that don't have autism.

    Those who don't know much about autism can view children afflict

    Those who don't know much about autism can view children afflicted as a burden but these children are in fact full of color and life. The author present the illness in a way that helps dispel many of the common misconceptions held about autistic children.

    For parents who have not dealt with this issue before, the book offers wonderful insights on how to deal with a variety of situations that can occur in a household with an autistic child. She gives readers a realistic look into how to relate to children as well as those who fall on the spectrum. There are several suggestions that help parents, loved ones, and caregivers deal with the challenges surrounding raising a autistic child while providing encouragement at the same time.

    Clearly this author knows the absolute chaos of a household deal

    Clearly this author knows the absolute chaos of a household dealing with the intense needs of an autistic child. I can't think of a book format that would be easier for me to read as I can snatch a few minutes here and there. The short format of 100 different situations or questions gives me the best chance of being able to absorb the very helpful advice in little snippets. I was also pleasantly surprised at so much information given for all different age ranges. She is so honest about the challenges while offering hope at the same time. We do much better when we can accept reality without the trap of hopelessness. If there is one thing any parent of an autistic child should know it is the fact that you never know how much that child can do successfully as long as the parents aren't seeing the future as dark and gloomy with no hope. Thanks, Katherine - this gem of a book will be a lot of help to our home for years to come!
