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; Aspergers 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. The Australian Autism Handbook is a practical and comprehensive guide to every aspect of raising an ASD child. This new edition, launched on April 2, 2013 to coincide with World Autism Awareness Day, and with a new co-author in Sydney-based journalist Kathryn Wicks (whose son was the first child in Australia to apply for the Federal Government's Helping Children with Autism Package funding), includes all the updated information as well as some additional chapters focussing on the needs of dads and siblings, older children on the spectrum and children with high-functioning autism.
