Since the birth my twin boys I have been on a journey of discovery, one I first believed was a new exploration driven by their diagnoses. I have since learned is as much about my own healing as it is theirs.
The truth is there no such thing as typical autism. No matter what uninformed professionals and parents might believe, diagnoses of autism are increasing exponentially every year, with more diverse subtypes of autism being recorded.
You can take charge of your child’s healing, by learning how to communicate with your children, by interpreting their non-verbal behaviors and addressing their pain and distress. This is a big help in developing specific treatment plans. This book will save you money, time, energy and suffering by helping you create a plan that works with your insurance plan, and helps you balance all the changes at home with parallel shifts in medical treatments, school plans, and remedial/emotional support systems.

Each chapter combines real-life stories, tips to interpret the behavioral codes associated with each factor, a clear explanation of the challenges and benefits of available treatments, resources to supporting an effective team-based approach, and authoritative, accessible citations for further research.
