Summary

Many tens of thousands of parents have found the facts they need about high-functioning autism spectrum disorder (ASD), including Asperger's syndrome, in this indispensable guide. Leading experts show how you can work with your child's unique impairments - and harness his or her capabilities. 

Vivid stories and real-world examples illustrate ways to help kids with ASD relate more comfortably to peers, learn the rules of appropriate behavior, and succeed in school. You'll learn how ASD is diagnosed and what treatments and educational supports really work. Updated with the latest research and resources, the second edition clearly explains the implications of the DSM-five diagnostic changes.

Outdated/ don’t waste your time

Outdated book, some ableist language. Definitely not written by an autistic person. Some beliefs harmful to the autistic community.

Appropriate

This is an informative book. I don’t know if it’s applicable to all ASD cases.

Great for introduction into the ASD world

As the mother of a child who was recently diagnosed with ASD, I felt lost and alone and didn’t know where to turn. I joined an autism support group on Facebook and came to Audible and downloaded a bunch of books. This one is, by far, my favorite. It answered all my questions and provided great tips for me to use in my daily life as well as in the future. I recommend this book for all parents who are struggling to understand how to best help their child with ASD. Good luck to you all! <3
