If you’ve been searching for a book to help you with navigating autism spectrum disorder, look no further! I’ve got precisely what you’ve been after!
Countless parents like you are beyond exhaustion, grasping for a sense of direction on how best to lead their loved one with autism. Well, you’re the kind of parent I had in mind when writing my book Navigating Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Since your child’s ASD diagnosis, it’s likely that you still have lots of lingering questions. It’s natural to become curious about all the possible causes that led to your child’s condition. And you likely struggle to manage and make sense of all that comes along with autism.
The ASD diagnosis means you’ve entered into a whole new world. And you’re now having to learn about things you’ve never had to consider before. You may be hearing about strange terms like the DSM 5 or learning about ICD 10 codes etc. All this can seem like a new language!
And if coming to grips with the diagnosis weren’t enough, dealing with autism symptoms are a whole different ball game. Managing those autism behaviors is an ongoing battle! And you’re undoubtedly desperate for solutions.
So, where do you begin to get the answers you need? Of course, consulting with a therapist or getting treatment are great options. However, not all parents have access to these options or other adequate resources.
To add, most parents are looking to get more than mere general information. Parents need specific direction that applies to their unique situation. I hope that this book will provide some much-needed guidance to desperate parents struggling to manage.
About “Navigating Autism Spectrum Disorder”
So what is “Navigating Autism Spectrum Disorder” all about? And you may be wondering, “What can I expect from it?’
In the book, I lay the foundation that every parent with an autistic child needs to have. First, I start by familiarizing parents with common challenges they can reasonably anticipate. We all generally deal better with challenges when we have an idea of what’s coming.
I then shift to specify foundational skills autistic individuals must develop to be independent. Indeed, every parent wants their child to do well. But for independence to occur, they’ll need the right skill repertoire. So the book addresses these core areas.
Finally, I guide parents through the nuances of social integration. Integration is a particularly important skill to develop in adults or high functioning individuals. At some point, parents must consider how well their child interacts in social contexts. Their ability to understand social dynamics and apply independent skills will determine how well they integrate.
The book also includes a checklist in the resource section so that you can gauge your loved one’s level of proficiency in several areas.
