I'm a speech language pathologist who's raising a son diagnosed with autism.
This book is stories & advice to encourage professionals, and parents, with a student with autism. My son was a quirky child with behavior and communication problems, who finally got a correct diagnosis of high-functioning autism in the 4th grade. In the years leading up to his diagnosis, and after, we tried most all the techniques used by professionals in the autism community. This book tells what we learned, and how we became good at parenting our amazing child with autism.
Topics include Therapy Tips & Ideas, Diagnosis, School & Advocacy, Family & Personal Life, and Adolescence & Beyond. I hope this book will help you feel supported, and give you new ideas for teaching & raising these unique individuals!
