Our understanding of the autism spectrum has improved dramatically in recent years. In Understanding Autism, two leading experts in the field combine their decades of experience to offer an extensive, accessible guide for parents and relatives.
This empathetic book covers everything from the causes of autism and the latest research to how it manifests at various ages and stages of life, from how to cope with common challenging behaviours to the importance of self-care for caregivers. An essential resource, it reassures and supports parents in coping during times of difficulty or transition, as well as with everyday life.
