Summary, etc.:
"Looking Ahead to the Future of Autism Study and Care. Autism and Tomorrow is a comprehensive resource that addresses many parents’ questions pertaining to their child with autism, such as financial planning, long-term care, employment options, and employer relationships, community resources, education, bullying, puberty, doctor visits, sex, nutrition, fitness, family relationships, and more. Karen L. Simmons, the founder and CEO of Autism Today, and Bill Davis, author of Breaking Autism’s Barriers, offer sound, expert advice derived from their own experiences. Both Simmons and Davis are parents of children with autism; consequently, Autism and Tomorrow is as much an autobiography as it is a reference book. Both authors draw inspiration directly from their own lives and apply their expertise to the general study of the subject. By doing so, Simmons and Davis hope to help other parents, caretakers, relatives, and friends improve both their knowledge of autism, and as a result, the lives of those affected by it"--Back cover.
