The number of children and young adults diagnosed with autism is rising. While most books are concerned with parenting children who have this condition, look for those that offer the autist’s perspective. Paige Ballou’s Sincerely Your Autistic Child is one of these.
Temple Grandin, an American academic who writes from the perspective of someone who has autism, has several new books on the topic. The Loving Push, for instance, is written for families who want to help their autistic loved one transition to adulthood.
