9781466215429: The Best Book On Raising Autistic Children

An Experienced Mother Shares Her Advice For Raising An Autistic Child Raising a child with special needs is never easy. It wasn't easy for me, either. My son Ross is profoundly autistic, and has been so since he was a baby boy.

I've been through the process of raising an autistic child from infancy to adulthood. It's a heart-wrenching experience for any parent. Raising a special needs kid gets easier, but you'll need the knowledge and patience to make it work.
As a mother with 30 years of special needs parenting experience, I can guide you through the most difficult challenges you'll face.

The decisions you make as a parent will determine whether your child suffers or thrives under the effects of autism. Learn from my mistakes. Learn from my successes. I want to teach you how to raise a happy and healthy child.
These are the strategies that worked for me, and they'll work for you too. I hope that my advice is effective and easy to follow. CHAPTER OUTLINE

About the Author:

COLLEEN MOORE   Colleen is convinced that all children can learn regardless of their intellectual capacity. She professes: "One must consider where a child begins on the learning path and each step forward is considered success." To this end, Colleen champions, "Fierce advocacy balanced with knowledge and common sense," as the mantra for parents of children with autism.   Colleen received her Bachelor of Science degree from Texas A&M University in 1977 and her Master of Education degree in 2010. Colleen has had an exemplary career as a master teacher of science education. Among her many accolades and awards are 2 Texas Senate Resolutions for Excellence in Teaching, 10 Texas Science Olympiad championships, and the student-nominated Joseph P. Whitehead Educator of Distinction Award presented by the Coca Cola Education Foundation for her "exemplary dedication to the field of education." She is currently specializing in teacher mentorship and leadership.   Colleen is blessed with two children. Ross, who is profoundly autistic, neurologically- impaired, self-abusive, and non-verbal, is both her greatest joy and greatest challenge. Ross's greatest gift is that he demonstrates daily the true meaning of life - faith, hope, and love. Colleen's daughter, Caitlin, is her brother's dedicated advocate, whose choice of career was highly influenced by her brother, as she is an exceptional Special Education teacher.
