"Empowering and practical, this guide is the perfect companion for parents who are finding it difficult to tell their children about their autism diagnosis. It provides a realistic yet uplifting approach to autism, treating it not only as a disability, but also a different and equally valid way to be in the world. By equipping parents with a language of positivity around autism, this book will make a difference to many children on the spectrum. It advises on how and when to talk to autistic children with both high and low care needs and provides guidance on supporting children's relationships with peers at school, as well as how to broach the conversation with the child's siblings." - BOOK JACKET
