I don’t know if I can count the number of times I have wanted a handbook to explain to me how to deal with Autism and the unique perspective it brings to life’s ordinary and not-so-ordinary moments. When a friend handed me Autism Every Day: Over 150 Strategies Lived and Learned by a Professional Autism Consultant with 3 Sons on the Spectrum, I really think a part of me sighed with relief.
Author Alyson Beytein covers every possible situation, beginning with diagnosing Autism through daily issues like picky eating, behavioral problems, and affection. She covers IEPs (Individualized Education Plans) and siblings, holidays and traveling… you name it.
And, even though she is a behavioral specialist, Alyson Beytein speaks with the voice and compassion of a mother. That is what I needed. I am tired of trying to decode long medical jargon. I wanted someone who had walked this path to guide me through the problems. To encourage me. To tell me that it is going to work out. This book is my solution.
