Description

This guide for parents is a complete introduction to autism and anxiety. Drawing on the author's clinical experience working with children and their families, it provides parents and carers with everything they need to know to help support their child.

It also has chapters dedicated to related behaviours including Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) and advice on managing meltdowns.

This is a clear, concise and practical guide that answers any questions that parents and carers might have about anxiety and provides support strategies to help children with autism manage a range of anxieties.

Critic Reviews

“Autism and anxiety walk hand in hand. If we are to help autistic children fulfil their full potential as adults, it is vital parents have the resources to tackle anxiety early on. This authoritative, wide-ranging guide is an essential contribution to any carer's toolkit. I've no doubt it will have a positive impact on many young lives.”

One of the most interesting, comprehensive and informative books on the topic I have ever had the pleasure of reading. This is a must have for either anyone with a family member or friend undergoing the throes of anxiety or who are going through it themselves. Raelene's diplomatic and engaging writing style is enough to slice anyone's anxiety in half. -- Harry Thompson, author, public speaker and PDA Expert -- Debby Elley, parent, author of Fifteen Things They Forgot to Tell You About Autism
