A Parent's Guide to Coping with Autism
This is an essential guide for parents and carers coping with children with autism.
When Sarah Ziegel's twin boys were diagnosed with autism, aged almost 3, she realised there was very little practical information about what to do. When her next two children were also diagnosed with the condition, she was determined to provide the information for others that she had desperately needed herself. This book is the result of Sarah's experiences of dealing with autism in the family.
While covering personal aspects such as coping emotionally with a diagnosis, A Parent's Guide to Coping with Autism also tackles practical matters, such as education, how to get help and support and also considers the medical side of autism.
Written by a former nurse, full-time mother and carer, A Parent's Guide to Coping with Autism is a highly sensitive and professional guide. Written from the heart and largely informed by the author's own experiences, this book will become your invaluable companion when faced with a diagnosis. It also offers insight for others interested in the impact on a family and how to help them.
Sarah lives with her husband and four boys in Richmond, Surrey.
