Jessie Hewitson's guide is a wise SatNav for what is often a bewildering, or even scary, zone of parenting. The book offers real-world, road-tested, child-first and family-friendly advice; while also highlighting the twin truths that autism is not a tragedy, and that adaptation and acceptance are not resignation. - David Mitchell, bestselling author and co-translator of The Reason I Jump
A must-read for anyone with an autistic child in their life. - Laura James, author of Odd Girl Out
Exceptionally useful and informative. - Uta Frith, Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Development, UCL
An important book that will no doubt become an invaluable source of support for any parent who suspects - or has been told - that their child has autism... While its practical advice does not soften or shy away from any of the difficulties that await parents - this is a book that celebrates difference and champions happiness. - Ambitious About Autism (from their foreword)
Jessie Hewitson really hits the mark with this book, giving our history, our diversity, our challenges and our hopes. Autistic people and their families are finally represented. - Carrie Grant
An essential read for all parents of autistic children.

I can relate to a lot of the challenges that the author has experienced, so the book is reassuring as well as helpful. I’ve recommended it to a number of friends in a similar position already.
My number one hope for my son is that he is happy - so with the help of this book, hopefully we can achieve this!
There is some very useful information about liaising with schools and the local authority which be very daunting to an “asd parent”.
I found it really refreshing how the author wasn’t afraid to share her own failures and successes. I related to a lot of what she said.
I’m going to send the grandparents copies of this book to help get them on board!
