A special discount will be offered as well in October when visitors purchase Autism Spectrum Disorders on the HealthyChildren Bookstore.
Autism Spectrum Disorders: What Every Parent Needs to Know is an invaluable resource for parents and caregivers of children who have been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Prepared under the editorial direction of 2 distinguished pediatricians who are autism experts—one of whom is also the parent of a son with autism —this book helps parents understand how ASDs are defined and diagnosed and provides information on the most current types of behavioral and developmental therapies. It also helps parents understand what they can do to help promote a smooth transition from adolescence through the teen years and into adulthood.
"(An) outstanding book and a tremendous resource for parents of autistic children. It is also a must-read for anyone else working to help children with autism reach their full potential," says
Richard E. Besser, MD, FAAP,Chief Health and Medical Editor, ABC News.
