Overview

My Child Has Autism: A Handbook for Parents and Professionals (second edition) by Dr Adrienne Robek

An easy to read, user-friendly crash course in autism and the various treatments that exist for it. For too long the books about autism have fallen into two categories:

1. Books that are scientifically sound but too technical, long-winded, and difficult to understand.

2. Books that are interesting and accessible, but woefully inaccurate.

By the time you finish reading this book you will have a better understanding of what autism is, which treatments do and do not work, how to help your child, and which government-funded resources are out there to help your family (in the United States).
