Over half a million people in Britain are somewhere on the Autistic Spectrum, which ranges from severe autism to Asperger's syndrome. 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. Jackie Brealy understands the problems from both a parent's and a teacher's perspective. She was concerned at the lack of down-to-earth, practical help for parents, so she teamed up with journalist, Beverly Davies to write "How to Help Your Autistic Spectrum Child". Together with input from Matt and other parents of ASD children, Jackie and Bev have written this totally practical guide to help parents with all those day-to-day problems that make life so tough for them and their ASD child.
