When first published in 2008, the Australian Autism Handbook quickly became the go-to guide for parents whose children have been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. In this new edition, the book has been updated with all the latest research, the ratings guide for early interventions, new chapters on teens; Asperger’s syndrome; DSM5 diagnostic criteria; and advice for dads by dads.

Its new resources section ensures you make the most of your funding and lists every website and phone number you could ever need. Australian Autism Handbook is a practical and comprehensive guide to every aspect of raising an ASD child.

          Perfect way to work through the maze that comes with an autism/Asperger's diagnosis. Lots of great stories but, more importantly, fantastic information and useful advice

          I found this book to be very informative as we are going down the diagnosing road and it helps to hear other stories similar to yours and how to help your child. Also where to get help etc
