Hope for Families of Children on the Autistic Spectrum (You Are Not Alone (Leafwood))
In American today, 730,000 children between the ages of 0-21 have Autism Spectrum Disorder. This inspiring book provides information, guidance, and encouragement for the families of these children.
Maintaining a family which cares for children with social and learning disorders can be overwhelming. Autism in a child can affect language comprehension, social interaction, and intellectual capabilities. Author Lynda T. Young’s education and experience come together to inform parents and give them the encouragement they need in the day-to-day trials of autism.
Hope for Families of Children on the Autism Spectrum looks at the family as a whole, making every attempt to include all members in the experience of special needs children. Lynda discusses everything from doctor and dental visits to play times with friends. She explains how to handle crisis, how to recognize signs of frustration and excitement, provides resources including a glossary of terms, and all the while helps parents find calm in the midst of the daily struggle.Hope for Families of Children on the Autism Spectrum
