'Offers real-world advice while also highlighting the twin truths that autism is not a tragedy, and that adaptation and acceptance are not resignation' David Mitchell, bestselling author and co-translator of The Reason I Jump

'A must-read for anyone with an autistic child in their life' Laura James, author of Odd Girl Out

Written by Jessie Hewitson, an award-winning journalist, Autism is the book she wishes she had read when her son was first given the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder.

It combines her own experiences with tips from autistic adults and other parents - including author David Mitchell - as well as advice from autism professionals and academics such as Professor Simon Baron-Cohen.

Autism looks at the condition as a difference rather than a disorder and, keeps your child's happiness at the centre of the conversation. This book includes guidance on what to do if you think your child is autistic, how to understand and support your child at school, how to create an autism-friendly home and how to navigate the healthcare system, to ensure your child can advocate for themselves with confidence.

This parenting journey may not always be easy, but you have come to the right place to get started.

'This should be compulsory reading for all teachers and parents' Bobby Seagull, author and teacher
