Over half a million people in Britain are somewhere on the autistic spectrum. It can be devastating to discover that your child has an ASD (autistic spectrum disorder) and even tougher helping them to cope with life. 

Many books will tell you the latest theories about what causes ASD, but what you really want to know is how to get a decent night’s sleep, or stop your child flapping their arms, or find some time for your other children.

This second, fully updated edition of this lifeline for parents helps them understand their ASD child and offers practical advice on all the problems that can make day-to-day life so tough.
