Coping with disability, Advice on parenting, Self-help & personal development

Three well-known autistic mothers offer advice and wisdom based on their experiences having and raising children.

This audiobook looks at what it feels like to be an autistic parent, offering valuable insights, knowledge and wisdom on parenting autistic and non-autistic children. Three mothers reflect on their experiences of growing up as undiagnosed autistics, venturing into and embracing motherhood, and connecting with their children in a unique and powerful way.

They offer advice on overcoming the challenges of parenting when you are autistic, such as socialising with other parents or sensory issues that come with excessive touch. Reflecting on their own experiences, they also emphasize the positives of being an autistic parent to an autistic child, such as understanding of why their child is struggling or the open-mindedness that can come from not being constrained by societal norms. They also explain how out-of-the-box thinking leads to creative parenting of non-autistic children, forming strong and loving bonds.

Full of wit and warm advice, this audiobook empowers autistic parents and reassures them that autism is a strength in raising their children with love, knowledge and experience, while also giving non-autistic parents and professionals a fresh perspective on helping autistic children to thrive.

Praise for Spectrum Women Autism and Parenting

  • What are the experiences of mothers who have autism? We can now read about those experiences and recognize the qualities of mothers on the spectrum and the challenges that they face. The personal disclosures, insights and advice will be of great benefit to women on the spectrum, their families and professionals.

  • Autistic parents peer through a unique looking glass when they raise their family. Consequently, there will be many moments when self-doubt, family, friends and people in authority challenge the autistic's ability to parent successfully. This book comes to the rescue with clearly outlined and pragmatic suggestions for parenting and the definitive reminder that people with autism can, and do, parent beautifully well.

  • A book of deep parental wisdom. Although it will be a powerful source of support for autistic mothers everywhere, this touching and intelligent collection of insights carries equal value for those of us parents who don't have the advantage of experiencing autism first hand. Through them, we can learn what it means to truly respect the needs of our autistic children, unencumbered by societal expectations.
