A Parent’s Guide to High-Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder, Second Edition: How to Meet the Challenges and Help Your Child Thrive





Table of Contents


Written by Sally Oznoff, PhD, widely known for her research and teaching of early diagnosis and assessment of Autism Spectrum Disorder in academia and private practice.

The book is easy to read and dissected into two parts;

Part 1 explains Autism, the diagnostic process, causes, and available treatments. While Part 2 provides actionable advice on how to channel your child’s strengths through tried and proven methodologies both inside and outside of the home.

This is an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to know more and understand autism as it’s meant to be understood. No two children are alike, and the same is true with individuals on the spectrum. With that being said, most do exhibit difficulties interacting socially as well as communication, therefore it’s an imperative read for all who wish to grasp a better core understanding to help their loved ones in this journey we all call life.
