Description
Understanding Autism is the essential reference for parents and care givers of children on the autistic spectrum.

Written by two leading experts in the field, this updated edition covers key information, like the causes of autism and how it manifests at the various ages and stages of a child's life, while also taking into account the importance of self-care for parents.

Authors Katrina Williams and Jacqueline Roberts bring considerable experience to the table, and clearly, comfortingly explain how to cope with common problematic behaviors, conditions that can often appear in conjunction with autism (such as anxiety and depression), and how best to manage the child's transition to adulthood.

Their warm, supportive voices will reassure you as they sort myth from fact, and provide everything you'll need to know to understand autism.
