Synopsis
What can be more devastating for a parent than to learn that her child is autistic? Defined as a neurological disorder that impairs communication and social skills, autism affects one in every 500 children born today. The Everything® Parent’s Guide to Children with Autism is a reassuring guide to help parents find the information and support they need as they struggle with conflicting emotions and overwhelming medical information.

Author Adelle Jameson, the mother of an autistic child and an active participant in the autism community, speaks directly to parents and explains exactly what they can expect after diagnosis, the range of treatments and therapies available, and where to go for advice—both medical and emotional.

The Everything® Parent’s Guide to Children with Autism shows parents how to:

· Communicate effectively with their child
· Deal with meltdowns, public or private
· Keep their family together as one unit
· Find a school that suits their child’s needs—integration vs. special education
· Learn about assistive devices, such as computers and picture boards

From finding support groups to planning for their child’s future, The Everything® Parent’s Guide to Children with Autism provides parents with all the information they need to ensure that their child’s—and their families’—needs are met.

Adelle Jameson Tilton (Chadron, NE) is the autism guide on About.com and the mother of an autistic son. In the mid-1990s, Ms. Tilton served as Secretary for WAYSAC, a nationally known autism organization in the state of Michigan. A member of the Autism Society of America, she is in communication with various autism groups in the United States including CAN (Cure Autism Now), FEAT (Families for Early Autism Treatment), NIDS Research Institute and Parent Coalition (NeuroImmune Dysfunction Syndrome), and the National Alliance for Autism Research.
