Overview

Answers to more than one hundred of the most frequently asked questions about autism, a disease that affects an estimated one in 250 children.

At the age of two, Dawn Ham-Kucharski's son, Alex, was diagnosed with autism, and she was given little hope that he would ever express himself verbally or interact meaningfully with others. But, now at the age of six, Alex is an uplifting autism success story, due to his mother's tireless efforts to seek out an appropriate treatment program, educational plan, and socialization strategy.

In The Autism Book, health and parenting journalist S. Jhoanna Robledo and Ham-Kucharski, an impassioned advocate for educational opportunity for autistic children, use their hard-won knowledge and experience to objectively and compassionately answer the most urgent questions of parents and educators of autistic children. The authors offer comprehensive information on diagnoses, causes, manifestations, treatment options, managing emotions, family relationships, parenting and lifestyle issues, education, and common worries.

    Under-Informed

    This book is simplistic at best. It is a meager addition to the many excellent and supportive references out there. But take a look at it in the store and see if you agree.

    Not enough expertise

    This book may be helpful for some parents new to the diagnosis but its format, questions followed by brief answers, does not go into enough depth to be truly helpful. You would be better off reading Olga Boshadina's books for knowledge of how the condition presents. One of the authors, a parent, is basing her answers on her experience with her own child, and a book based on that alone would have been a better read than one that attempts to come across as professional advice.

    Amazingly helpful!

    This book is great for those whose children are newly diagnosed. The authors seem to have done extensive research. Can't say enough great things about it -- only wish it extended beyond the teenage years.
