Another stellar read is EMPOWERED AUTISM PARENTING, a must read for every parent of a child with ASD's. Read this first if your child has just been diagnosed. Again, Stillman has an incredible voice, a great sense of wit and humor, and a call to reality for those of us who were/are steering blindly into the world of autism as parents.
