Girls Under the Umbrella of Autism Spectrum Disorders : Practical Challenges for Addressing Everyday Problems
Co-authored by an experienced professional and a mother of a young girl on the autism spectrum, this much-needed book combines the best of both worlds: it gives a voice to girls on the autism spectrum by providing insightful, first-hand accounts while also detailing research-based strategies and practical techniques for addressing the specific needs of girls on the spectrum. The extensive coverage of girls from early childhood through adolescence and early adulthood gives parents and educators access to a wealth of information that is typically hard to find. Personal vignettes by families and girls living with ASD make this both a heartfelt book and a practical resource.
