Hello everyone! Over the next couple of days, I will be sharing with you 2 books that I have read recently that talk about Autism in the family. The first one (appropriatly named) is Autism in the Family: Caring and Coping TOGETHER.
This book tells of a father, Dr. Robert Naseef, who’s son was diagnosed with Autism and how his life changed. He gives some insight about his journey learning about Autism and his observation from working with his family and other families with children with Autism.
This book is excellent for parents, caregivers, mental health professionals, and siblings for guidence when you have a loved one with Autism. His extensive lists of resources are helpful when navigating the the world of Autism. For, as the saying goes, “Once you’ve met one person with Autism, you’ve met one person with Autism,” which goes to say that everyone with Autism is different as well as everyone’s experience with Autism is different.
Parents, siblings, extended family, friends, all have a different experience when it comes to one person with Autism. This book goes into the support that the family may need as well as some of the intircacies of each relationship. This book is a wealth of knowledge for any family! Whether your child was recently diagnosed, or you have been living with Autism in your family for years, you will find some excellent sources of information for you!
As always, take care of yourselves until next time.
