A Practical Guide for Families of Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders
True to its title, this comprehensive resource offers parents and other caregivers practical and effective approaches to solving the many puzzles of daily living with a child on the autism spectrum, from dressing and eating to visiting the dentist and getting used to a new baby. Each scenario is broken down into for components: the presenting problem is defined; its possible relevance to ASD is explained; recommendations and strategies are offered; and a summary conclusion is provided. This helpful manual was inspired by the authors' experiences working with a wide range of families.
