Children With High-Functioning Autism: A Parent's Guide offers parents the information needed to help them cope with their child's autism and to navigate the path as they first perceive differences, seek assistance and treatment, and help their child develop into his or her full potential. Including examples of the author's own experiences with her child with autism, this book helps families realize that there are others on similar paths--and help is available. With topics ranging from understanding the first signs of autism and the diagnosis, finding a support network and filling out necessary paperwork, to determining the various types of therapies available and planning for adulthood, this book provides parents valuable insight into this new world. With an emphasis on high-functioning autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified, and Asperger's syndrome, Children With High-Functioning Autism: A Parent's Guide helps parents learn to celebrate small areas of growth and keep the focus on the child.
