A must have resource for kids with ASD

Autism statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identify around 1 in 88 American children have been diagnosed with autism. That's why it's important to bring awareness and inform families about ASD.

THE SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR KIDS WITH AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDERS (AND THEIR PARENTS) is a great resource that takes a look into ASD and hopes to improve the lives of all those on the autism spectrum. It begins with an introduction for kids and explains that the book is about discovering why they're different. It reminds kids that like many people, they have special skills and gifts, but they also have some special needs. There's also an introduction for adults, as the book is meant to be read together. The book covers everything from communication to socialization to repetitive behaviors and kids will appreciate hearing the stories of other kids who are going through the same thing.

Learning you have ASD can be confusing for any kid, which is why this book sets out to make it easier for every family. Find tools to help you get organized, learn to handle hard-to-handle feelings, sharpen those homework habits and make the most of school. By the time you reach the end of the book, your family will have found the answers to many questions you've wanted to ask and if not, there's additional information for where to go for more info. Overcoming autism doesn't have to be a lonely road, especially with great resources like this one you'll turn to time and time again.
