This guide will help readers have an in-depth understanding of autism, and provide a plan for parents to raise happy, healthy children.
One in every sixty-eight children will be diagnosed with autism. More children will be diagnosed with autism than with AIDS, diabetes, and cancer combined. This means every year in America sixty thousand families will receive the diagnosis that their precious son or daughter has an autism spectrum disorder. With diagnosis at such an alarming rate, how can parents be equipped to confidently raise children with autism?
All children can flourish and mature through love.
