If you’ve ever wondered how to handle raising a child with autism, this book can be a life-saver. It’s overwhelming to try to digest the plethora of information found online everyday, but Pamela Bryson-Weaver puts all this information together in a daily guide to living autism. Although the book comes off looking like a daily reflection, when you get further into the book, you see it’s more than just that. She includes advice on how to handle meltdowns with a nonverbal child, to help your child learn socialization skills, to open your heart up to the upsides to living with autism, and, on top of all of that, it includes evidence-based interventions. The book is well put-together and truly captures every aspect of living autism form the perspective of a parent rather than a practitioner.
If you’re looking for a source of daily inspiration, this book might be the answer, but, more than that, this book aims to provide hope and courage to parents living with autism every single day.
