Young children with autism often sense that they are somehow different from most of their peers, or detect that other kids see them as being different even if they don't feel different themselves. Authors Elizabeth Verdick and Elizabeth Reeve, MD, both mothers of children with autism/ASD, have written this book to help children what it means to have a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and to assure them that "it's going to be okay." Using sensitive and caring language that most kids with autism can understand, the authors endeavor to make the experience of growing up with ASD easier by helping them understand their special needs and inherent worth.

Designed for children with ASD to read together with a loving and supportive parent or caregiver, The Survival Guide for Kids with Autism Spectrum Disorders (And Their Parents), is both practical and inspirational. The authors guide children through the questions, challenges and frustrations they may have about their lives. It helps them understand their diagnosis explores strategies and to improve their social skills at school, at home and in the community. 

This easy-to-read, positive book is divided into three parts:

  • "A Look Into Autism Spectrum Disorders," explaining symptoms and famous people with autism /ASD
  • "Home, School and Community," about improving daily life
  • "Body and Brain Basics," a look into the physical and emotional issues that play a part in  life with autism/ASD

Each colorfully illustrated section contains real-life stories of kids on the autism spectrum, and quotes from real kids who share their thoughts about living with ASD.  Valuable tools, such as behavior charts and cheat-sheets for things like helping to read people's body language, also are included.

An excellent book for parents or teachers to read with children with autism/ASD to help them understand and accept themselves and develop the foundation for self-advocacy.
