Autism How to Raise a Happy Autistic Child


The book offers real-world, road-tested, child-first and family-friendly suggestions; while also highlighting the twin truths that autism is not a tragedy, and that adaptation and acceptance are not resignation.

It combines her own experiences with tips from autistic adults, other parents - including author David Mitchell - as well as suggestions from autism professionals and academics.

Autism looks at the condition as a difference rather than a disorder and includes guidance on:

  • What to do if you think your child is autistic.
  • How to understand and support your child at school and at home.
  • Mental health and autism.
  • The differences between autistic girls and boys.
