  • Description

    A wise SatNav for what is often a bewildering, or even scary, zone of parenting.

  • More Information

    The book offers real-world, road-tested, child-first and family-friendly advice; while also highlighting the twin truths that autism is not a tragedy, and that adaptation and acceptance are not resignation.

    It combines her own experiences with tips from autistic adults, other parents - including author David Mitchell - as well as advice from autism professionals and academics such as Professor Simon Baron-Cohen.

    Autism looks at the condition as a difference rather than a disorder and includes guidance on:

    • What to do if you think your child is autistic
    • How to understand and support your child at school and at home
    • Mental health and autism
    • The differences between autistic girls and boys.
