If you’ve just been told the devastating news that your kid has been diagnosed with autism, this book is for you. Or if you’re drawn towards helping autistic children, then this book will be a good starting point for you.
Autism is a spectrum of disorders. As a result, there are a lot of misconceptions about the disorder – autistic individuals are wrongly thought of as misbehaved, “spoilt” or mentally retarded. Simply put, autism is a neurological and developmental disorder. Kids and adults with autism are wired differently and have a different understanding of the world around them; hence, they do not see and interact with the environment in the “neurotypical” manner in which the rest of us do.
When you finish reading this book, you will be able to appreciate every milestone of your autistic child, achieved at their own pace, and will be able to enjoy the simple joys of life together.
