A picture of autism like never before.
Told through a collection of stories and research on everything from employment and education to technology and parenting, this is autism in its rightful, modern context.
This package includes an individual download of the book providing tons of info and reasons to be optimistic about the future, and beautifully laid out for you to enjoy on a Kindle or iPad, your computer, paper, or even your phone. For personal use. It also includes a small digital collection of autism posters.

Reducing parental stress is incredibly difficult but skills-based techniques and mindfulness-based techniques both work. We'll look at how reducing stress can have additional benefits for the parent-child relationship beyond just parents feeling better.
We seem to have just accepted that autism occurs at different rates in boys and girls, but we've barely scratched the surface of all the reasons why we might be under-recognizing autism in girls, and even wrongfully characterizing the spectrum across genders. New findings and a new tool point to a brighter future.
Never Stop Learning
