Editorial Reviews

Review

" … gives advice on how to spot the traits of autism in a child and how to get the right help from doctors, counsellors, therapists and other professionals." (Children now, April 2006)

From the Back Cover

Does My Child Have Autism? is a question so many parents are asking themselves today. Is he avoiding eye contact? Why can't she talk? Is my child's development normal or does he have an Autism Spectrum Disorder? Parents know that if their child is somewhere on that spectrum, they need to intervene as early as possible to maximize the benefits of early treatment. This groundbreaking book, by one of the foremost experts, teachers, and clinicians in the field, provides a guide for parents about what to look for at home at twenty-four months or even earlier, what to do, and how to get the right kind of help from doctors, counselors, therapists, and other professionals.

Step-by-step, Stone walks you through the diagnostic process for young children with autism and offers vital information about what will be expected of you and your child during the clinical assessment. The book reveals the critical importance of early intervention and outlines the various types of interventions that are currently available. In addition, Does My Child Have Autism? gives you practical tips, activities, and teaching tools that can be used at home to improve your child's social, communication, and play skills.

"Clear and compassionate ... takes families through early warning signs, understanding the diagnostic process, and what types of early treatment might be helpful. A must-read for families with children who may have or do have an Autism Spectrum Disorder as well as clinicians and caregivers of children and families with ASD."
—Susan E. Levy, M.D., Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

I am an employee of the school system and work with many youth who have autism. I frequently look for resources to recommend to parents so they can educate themselves about Autism and better help their child in the home environment. Wendy Stone's book would be very helpful for parents who suspect possible Autism in their young child (Under 4 years of age). It discusses what goes into the diagnosis, and emphasizes the point that parents and practitioners can't dwell on one unusual behavior or deficit when considering a diagnosis (as it involves a cluster of behaviors displayed to a certain degree). The book also discusses strategies for parents to help their children in the home environment. A strength of the book, is that it has accounts from a family as they go through the process of diagnosis and treatment. Also, the book informs the reader of what to expect during the evaluation process, and includes frequently asked questions.

An excellent book to get you started down what could be a very long road. It might be helpful to know ahead of going to see a developmental pediatrician that your child might have a developmental disorder. However I would not use this book as the end all and to diagnose (and I don't think the author would either).

Once you know for sure (after getting the diagnosis from your Doctor) try "Overcoming Autism" as a next step book. And settle in for a lot of reading. Stay away from the "simple cure" books too. There is a lot (too much) information out there. Take it one step at a time and talk to other parents too.

Format: Paperback
I work in the field of developmental disabilities and am a follower of recent studies and books that come out on various disabilities. Dr. Stone's book is not only educational, but is to-the-point. It is full of figures/tables to help explain the difference of the different spectrum disorders, frequently asked questions, and examples from parents with a child with autism or PDD-NOS. I would highly recommend this book if you are just trying to educate yourself about autism, or if you are truly wondering if your child does, indeed, have autism. The book is well-written and easy for the "lay person" to understand and interpret.
