REAL LIFE REVIEW: Autism: How to Raise a Happy Autisic Child - Jessie Hewitson

RELEASE DATE:  22/03/18

PUBLISHER:  Orion Spring

The definitive guide for parents of autisic children, written from the perspective of neurodiversity.
Written by Jessie Hewitson, an award-winning journalist at The Times, Autism is the book she wishes she had read when her son was first given the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder.
It combines her own experiences with tips from autistic adults, other parents - including author David Mitchell - as well as advice from autism professionals and academics such as Professor Simon Baron-Cohen. Autism looks at the condition as a difference rather than a disorder and includes guidance on:
· What to do if you think your child is autistic
· How to understand and support your child at school and at home
· Mental health and autism
· The differences between autistic girls and boys

Having recently learned that my nephew is undergoing testing for Autism I picked this book up as I felt that as an Uncle I needed to understand the condition and how the brain works so that I can help get him toys that he will love, books that appeal and  find a way to adapt outings for his needs.

Its well written, explains each point succinctly, uses examples to help back up the authors arguments and gives advice on what you can and can't do and how to obtain what they need in thier education to help them develop.

Its a book I'll be reading multiple times and I've passed it onto my Mum and Sister for them to have a read to help them understand too.  I have to give the author praise for this title as its easy to follow, easy to understand and gives you plenty of points of access to help you in your own daily struggles.  I can't sell this book enough.

  1. As a sign of gratitude on how my son was saved from autism, i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My son suffered autism in the year 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, he always have difficulty with communication,and he always complain of poor eye contact  . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and they left the contact of this doctor who have the cure to autism . I never imagined autism  has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my son will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my son used it and in one months time he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life.autism  has a cure and is a herbal cure,you can contact the doctor for more info on on how to get this medication, Thanks.
