Hearing the words “your child has Autism” is more common than ever. But dealing with this news will never be easy. When the devastating diagnosis is made, millions of questions and concerns will flood parents’ brains. This book will answer panicked parents’ questions in clear and complete terms. Taking an in-depth look at the reality of the disability, its causes, and how to cope as a family, this professional yet personal primer will help parents get through those first oh-so-tough times after the diagnosis.

Autism is a complex developmental disability—there are no medical tests for diagnosing autism and there is no “cure.” Parents need an accessible resource to go to for help in a hurry—when they don’t know where else to turn and what is going to happen next.
