About this title


For any parent of a child on the autism spectrum, obtaining educational and other services for their child is an ongoing and often intractable problem. This book tells the story of two parents of a child first diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS), whose initial experiences with the education system were not unlike those of most parents of a child with a disability. Their role soon changed from parents to parent/professionals when they realized that the professionals were not sure how to respond to their son's special needs. This book describes their experiences in obtaining educational services and information about the disability community, what they learned from those experiences and what other parents can do to help their own child. The book provides honest, open, and practical advice, which will be invaluable to anyone whose child is diagnosed with an autism spectrum condition, and to all those professionals who work with them.
