Welcome to the world of autism - a book specifically for those for whom a diagnosis is their first introduction to autism

An easy-to-read introduction to autism for parents of a newly diagnosed child to know where to start. This book is specifically for those who know little or nothing about autism and Asperger syndrome until their child is diagnosed. Written by a renowned expert in the field, Autism and Asperger Syndrome in Children gently but honestly explores the issues of being a parent to a child with autism. It analyses what autism actually is, as opposed to the myths and misconceptions about it, and what it might mean to the child, parent, and wider family. Topics include:

Autism theory, myths and alternative perspectives
Sensory issues
Conversations with your child - the 'autistic voice'
How to handle your child's anxiety
Happy autistic children
The strengths of autism

Dr Luke Beardon says, 'Welcome to the world of autism - and an intriguing, beguiling, frustrating, and remarkable world it is! Irrespective of what you might have been told, or what preconceptions anyone might have, I hope this book will help you understand your child's unique value and importance in the world.'
