How to meet the challenges and help your child thrive. It is clearly written by professionals who have considerable experience in this field, and take a practical and pragmatic approach. The first four chapters cover the technical aspects of the diagnosis of high functioning autism, the process of making the diagnosis and treatment options.
- 1001 Great Ideas for Teaching and Raising Children with Autism or Asperger's.
- Violets Are Blue (Garden of Love Book 9)!
- Self and Sovereignty: Individual and Community in South Asian Islam Since 1850.
- The New York Stories of Elizabeth Hardwick (New York Review Books Classics).
- Army of the Dead.
These chapters are relatively brief and serve as an introduction to the topic. Parents who are knowledgeable in this field may wish to skip this first section and go straight to the meat of the matter. For those who are not up to date with the process of diagnosis and treatment, these chapters serve as a good summary and introduction to the area.
The remainder of the book, which is the majority, looks at ways in which the unique challenges faced by autists, their care givers and peers, can be met. It covers common situations and challenges encountered at home and school. Social deficits are examined and ways to compensate for these suggested.
The needs of adult autists are also explored and their needs, such as the transition from school to the work place, are also covered. In my experience the needs of adults with autism are often overlooked in mental health literature and mainly covered by the social sciences.
The acknowledgement that high functioning autism remains a challenge in adulthood is a very welcome inclusion in this text. These authors guide parents to use the strengths of autists, rather than emphasizing their deficits and handicaps, as well as helping the caregivers recognize their own strengths and resiliency. It is an optimistic and yet realistic approach, backed up by research and experience in the field, and is appealing. Clearly public resources have never been adequate, and with the increase in need as rates of diagnosis increase, more and more parents are left in a position where they have to educate themselves so that they can advocate for their children and ensure that they do receive the services that can be made available.
