Description

Finding out that your child is on the Autism Spectrum is just the beginning. The diagnosis will give you some information, but the choices parents make next can impact the journey that the child and the family must follow. This journey is likely one of great highs and some very challenging lows. Parenting the Autistic child is a unique parenting experience for many reasons. First, your child may have difficulty communicating their needs. Second, the systems and organizations your child will have to navigate are rarely designed with Autism in mind. As a parent, you will need to be engaged in learning about Autism every day. Certainly, this includes learning about your child, but you must be seeking external knowledge too. Autism Parents must actively gain knowledge about necessary therapies, developmental pediatricians, available resources, autism support services, the school systems, the legal systems, the criminal justice system and on and on. While the learning curve is step, the challenge is intensified because the parents of autistic children are often very isolated. How can they obtain the critical information needed for them to develop and protect their child?

This book offers insight into the information parents will need to support their Autistic child from their first day of school until their last. Each chapter provide knowledge regarding a critical aspect of parenting including specific steps, potential challenges, research and antidotes about different aspects of the Autistic individual’s academic experience.

This book will fill the gap between autism peer reviewed literature and self-help parented advice books. The objective is to offer critical information that parents will need to develop their child and keep their child safe throughout their academic experiences. Each chapter will include research, antidotes, resources, and critical steps to help navigate the special needs academic environments autistic children will experience. The chapters will be presented in a reader friendly format to support diverse parent learning needs. The book is designed to empower parents and to help parents empower their autistic children.
