Parents who have just received a diagnosis for their child are often shell-shocked. Autism Life Skills offers comprehensive advice for parents and 'coaches' them on how to work through the emotions inherent to having a child who is not developing as expected. It also addresses the practical issues that must be considered when raising a child with special needs, such as safety at home and earning a living, and teaches parents how to give their children the skills they will need for a healthy, happy life. Through empowerment strategies, Autism Life Skills offers support for parents new to autism and shows them how to: - Communicate with their child and each other - Address the issue of self-esteem - Develop social relationships for their child - Foster independence in your child
