If you have or think you may have a child with autism, you may be overwhelmed with fear, confusion, doubt, regret, self-blame, and more. Author Anne Moore Burnett has been there and can assure you that there is hope. In Step Ahead of Autism, she supplies you with a host of simple yet powerful tools you can use to meet the inevitable challenges of raising an autistic child at any age.
In Step Ahead of Autism, Burnett uses the true story of her son Joey, who was diagnosed with severe autism at age three and went on to become a successful college student, to empower caregivers everywhere. Readers of Step Ahead of Autism will learn how to transform themselves–their intentions, beliefs, attitudes, and reactions–so that they have more influence over how their child does than they ever imagined possible.
Step Ahead of Autism is the first book on autism to offer step-by-step, attainable, parent-tested exercises, techniques, and tips; important attributes every parent can develop and nurture in themselves; the knowledge and confidence necessary to meet the challenges of raising an autistic child; a strong argument for making early diagnosis and intervention the primary goals of every parent, pediatrician, educator, and caregiver.
