A Parent’s Guide to Autism is the essential guide for every parent and carer coping with children with autism.
When Sarah Ziegel’s twin boys were diagnosed with autism, aged almost three, she realised there was very little practical information about what to do. When her next two children were also diagnosed with the condition, she was even more determined to put that lack of information right. This book is the result of Sarah’s experiences dealing with autism in the family.
While covering personal aspects such as coping emotionally with a diagnosis, A Parent’s Guide to Coping with Autism also tackles practical matters, such as education and the EHCP process, how to get help and support, and also considers the medical side of autism.
Written by a former nurse, full-time mother and carer, A Parent’s Guide to Coping with Autism is a highly sensitive and professional guide. Written from the heart and informed by the author’s own experiences, this is the book you will want to reach for when faced with a diagnosis, or if you simply want to find out more about the condition.
Sarah Ziegel practised as a nurse and is now a mother with four autistic children. She and her husband live near Richmond, Surrey.
