Beyond the Autism Diagnosis: A Professional's Guide to Helping Families by Marion O'Brien, Julie A. Daggett

Publisher: Brookes Publishing





Overview


After a child's autism diagnosis, how can therapists, educators, and early interventionists best support parents and caregivers? This book is filled with the first-hand parent feedback professionals need to answer this critical question. Building on their research project that captured the experiences of more than 60 families, the authors reflect on excerpts from dozens of interviews that reveal parents' needs, concerns, beliefs, and dreams. Through these candid revelations and the authors' expert commentary, professionals will increase their understanding of the parent experience so they can provide the best possible services for children and families. Readers will discover invaluable insights they'll use to

avoid misunderstandings and communicate accurately and sensitively
understand parents' complex emotions and perceptions
nurture strong, respectful partnerships with parents
conduct effective assessment and intervention
demystify assessment results for parents
assist families in choosing and evaluating intervention services
help families manage the short- and long-term issues that arise when parenting a child with ASD
increase their own awareness of the vocabulary of autism and the facts and mysteries of the disorder

Essential reading for students, new professionals, and established practitioners alike, this incisive, accessible guide gives readers something they can't get elsewhere — a deep understanding of parents' needs and feelings, directly from over 60 families with firsthand experience.
