    DescriptionThis is by far the most complete and comprehensive study ever written for parents of autistic children, and for teachers, child specialists, and other professionals who care for them. It provides help and hope not only for the autistic child, but also for their family and other care givers who must come to grips with their own grief, confusion, and self-doubt following a diagnosis of autism or other related disorder. Siegel believes that the parent' best defence against the devastation of the diagnosis of autism or PDD (Pervasive Developmental Disorder) is to acquire as early as possible the knowledge and the parenting skills to work with the professionals who are there to help their child fulfil their potential. Bryna Siegal discusses how to understand the diagnosis of autism, the available treatments, and how to decide what is best for the an autistic child, and pulls together a wealth of information on the latest educational and medical advances. The result is a superb guide and resource that noone who cares about autistic young people will want to be without. This book is intended for parents of autistic children and professionals working with them.
