Summary
A psychologist and father of an adult son with autism, Dr. Robert Naseef has both personal and professional expertise to share with overwhelmed families. Weaving wisdom from years of clinical practice with candid first-hand insights on parenting a child from birth through adulthood, Naseef helps parents -- navigate the complex emotional journey to acceptance -- guide their child's behavior and development at every age -- maintain a strong and mutually supportive marriage -- understand the needs of siblings and provide sensitive support -- collaborate effectively with professionals -- address specific issues like meltdowns, food sensitivities, sleeping, and toileting -- manage stress -- build a strong circle of support with family and friends. Using Naseef's popular Special Children, Challenged Parents as a starting point, this completely reworked and revised new book reflects 10 years of change, both in the author's life and in the autism field. Parents will benefit from new chapters on navigating their child's adolescence and adulthood, expanded and updated information on autism, and rare in-depth coverage of the needs, emotions, and parenting experiences of fathers. A warm, down-to-earth, and practical guide for parents-and an enlightening read for the professionals who work with them-this book will be a valuable companion as families love and support their child with autism
