As a parent, you want to ensure that your bright child with autism spectrum disorder will have a bright future! And you are not alone. According to an Easter Seals survey, parents of children who have ASD were most worried about their children having independence in adulthood. Quality of life, fitting into society, and employment were also top concerns. Your knowledge of your child, your devotion, and your many varied experiences with your child make you the ideal coach. This book was written to help you, the parent, to raise your child with the foundational skills he or she will need for the future.
