"What Every Parent Must Know About Their Autistic Child..."

Autism is a complex disorder, and there really is no one singular way to discuss or define it. But there is one thing that is true across the board when it comes to autism: the number of questions parents have.

I know what it's like to be unsure and worried about what to do for the best for a loved one with autism. I know all too well about the many challenges and frustrations that you are facing with your autistic child.

When my son was diagnosed with autism in 2009, I scoured every book and website I could find looking for answers. And for every question answered, there always seemed to be three more questions related to the original, and on and on.

The 'specialists' who were supposed to help me told me very little about all the options available. So, I searched high and low for methods and practical advice I could put in place, but struggled to find anything useful.

Many resources I found were either poorly written, contained out-of-date information, written for doctors or medical practitioners, or only gave part of the information that I needed.

I'm sure you've found the same... Come across similar frustrations on your journey to understand autism.

For me, the only option available was to find the answers myself...

I spent many days, weeks and months researching proven techniques to really understand and manage autism.

Fortunately you don't have to spend countless hours searching and verifying information like I did. I wrote this guide to cover a lot of the basic questions parents have, and a few you may have never thought of.

If you'd like to have a better understanding of the reasons behind your autistic child’s behaviors, so you can help your child more and take some of the pressure off you and the rest of your family then this is the guide for you.
