The book offers real-world, road-tested, child-first and family-friendly advice; 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 advice from autism professionals and academics such as Professor Simon Baron-Cohen.
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.
