Product Description

Review

"I really like how this book emphasizes building on the talents and strengths of a person with high-functioning autism. It contains many useful case histories and combines both scientific and practical information for parents, teachers, and other professionals."--Temple Grandin, PhD, author of "Thinking in Pictures" What an immensely readable and empowering book! It contains everything a parent needs to know in order to understand, support, and advocate for a child with high-functioning autism spectrum disorder. The authors are leaders in the field--sensitive and compassionate clinicians as well as highly respected clinical researchers. This second edition provides practical insights and useful strategies that are well grounded in the most current scientific knowledge. --Wendy L. Stone, PhD, Director, READI Lab: Research in Early Autism Detection and Intervention, University of Washington, Seattle This is the indispensable book I would want were I the parent of a child, adolescent, or adult with high-functioning autism or Asperger syndrome. Written and organized in a way that is highly engaging and accessible, the expert authors show parents how to maximize success at each stage of life from toddlerhood to adulthood. Unique in its positive approach, the "Guide" focuses on how to capitalize on the strengths shown by affected individuals, offering practical strategies that promote self-esteem and better emotional health. Parents will find this hands-on guide engaging, informative, sometimes funny, and most important, highly useful. --Deborah Fein, PhD, Departments of Psychology and Pediatrics, University of Connecticut With a plethora of books available about autism, this is one of the few that I recommend to parents whose child has just received a diagnosis. It is written by some of the world s leading authorities, who combine up-to-date research and practice in a highly accessible way. While the content is grounded in research, it has many down-to-earth practical tips and advice. The second edition will be on the reading list I give my clinical students in child psychology and psychiatry. --Tony Charman, PhD, Chair in Clinical Psychology, Institute of Psychiatry, King s College London, United Kingdom "This is the book that I recommend you read first after receiving your child's diagnosis--you'll find researched treatments, strategies, and resources to begin helping your son or daughter right away. It will help you prioritize and chart the course for 'what's next.' The authors emphasize how gaining a deeper understanding of your child's strengths, talents, and preferences can help you create meaningful supports as he or she grows into adulthood."--Lynne Weissmann, mother of an adult with Asperger syndrome"

This book actually gave me hope for my poor son.
I live in Cambridge where there is no provisions for Autistic Children, just some meetings here and there and my local assessment centre 'The Croft' could not understand him at all.
So, in search of some sort of understanding as to why no school would accept my quiet son, it was this book that filled in all the gaps. I am now armed with fuel to fight for his education. Why a little professor can't be part of a school is just simply discrimination! Thanks for sharing your story and your mum must be really great.

Best of luck for your future.

Bernice Walsh.

I bought this for my sister who finally acknowledged there was something not quite right with her child. She read it straaight away and found some similarity to her child's behaviour. I hope it helped her understand her child from a different perspective.

A bit technical, I gave it to a client to read and she found it hard work. It's ok if you are happy to pick what you read.
