Autism and the Family: Understanding and Supporting Parents and Siblings

Neil James Senior lecturer, course director, Learning disability nursing, University of East Anglia

This book provides a thought-provoking perspective of the experiences of families of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). A big strength is the use of the words and stories of family members themselves to provide support and context to the theory. The book covers a wide range of topics starting from families receiving the diagnosis of ASD for their child through to growing up into adulthood.
