It seems that nearly everyone knows a family with an autism spectrum child.
Most recent figures suggest that the prevalence of all autism spectrum disorders
in the United States is an astonishing 1% of the population in the United States,
translating to twelve million parents and grandparents that are seeking answers.

There are many books available on how to cure an autistic preschooler, but
none on how to raise one to adulthood. These promised cures raise parents' hopes,
but most parents will find that they are dealing with a lifelong challenge no matter
what they do. Dr. Laura Hendrickson is a trained psychiatrist, biblical counselor-and
the mother of an autistic child. She understands the struggles parents face as they
try to communicate with their autism spectrum child and manage behavior challenges. 

an approach that is grounded in a deep understanding of the challenges those caring
for autism spectrum children face, Finding Your Child's Way on the Autism
gives the reader sound, practical tools for understanding how to guide
an autism spectrum child to function more fully as the person God created them to
