About Autism: One Grandparent’s Roadmap:
Although written in a grandparent’s voice, the book is also for parents. When our family received our Autism diagnosis, we had to Google Autism, because we knew so little about the condition. The book is a compilation of live links and articles to get you started on your journey. For the child’s sake, you can’t afford to be behind in knowledge. Everything you learn makes life better for the child.
When it came to learning and understanding what autism is and isn’t, and how to appropriately support our child; we had to dig out every word on our own. Where do we go? Where do I find this? How do I do that? What does stimming mean?
After six years with a lovely grandson on the spectrum, I decided we needed a roadmap. With luck, someone smarter than me will write a better one.
The links embedded in the book are live so, you can go directly to the resources or articles I’ve cited.
I’m not a therapist or clinician but I’ve spent years accumulating information to help my grandson: I wish I’d had the day he was diagnosed.
