Empowering and practical, this guide is the perfect companion for parents who are finding it difficult to tell their children about their autism diagnosis. It provides a realistic yet
uplifting approach to autism, treating it not as a disability but as a difference.
 
Not telling children about their autism diagnosis can have a significant negative impact on their mental health; by equipping parents with a language of positivity around autism, the book will make a difference to many children on the spectrum. It advises on how and when to talk to autistic children with both high and low care needs, and provides guidance on supporting children's relationships with peers at school, as well as how to broach the conversation with the child's siblings.
 
Concise and easy to read, The Little Book of Autism FAQs answers parents' questions with accessible language, preparing them to approach this difficult conversation in a
constructive manner.
1. What's Autism Anyway? 2. Do I Really Need to Tell Them they have Autism? 3. Won't Telling them Just make them feel Different? 4. How do I actually go about Telling My Child that they have Autism? 5. What about Telling Other People?
