Autism Life Skills : 10 Essential Abilities Your Child with Autism Needs to Learn Paperback
Parents who have just received a diagnosis for their child are often shell-shocked. "Autism Life Skills" offers comprehensive advice for parents and 'coaches' them on how to work through the emotions inherent to having a child who is not developing as expected.
It also addresses the practical issues that must be considered when raising a child with special needs, such as safety at home and earning a living, and teaches parents how to give their children the skills they will need for a healthy, happy life.
Through empowerment strategies, "Autism Life Skills" offers support for parents new to autism and shows them how to: communicate with their child and each other; address the issue of self-esteem; develop social relationships for their child; and foster independence in your child.
