This information is especially important to parents and caregivers of autistic children who may not realize how their vigorous attempts to do what is "best" for their children are actually having a negative impact on their social/emotional development. It is based on the personal experiences of the contributors, divulging what has helped or hurt them as they navigated childhood and adulthood as autistic individuals.--Publisher.
