Practical, evidence-based advice for managing distressed behaviours and common situations involving autistic children.

Autism affects about one per cent of the population, and whilst it can present very differently among individuals, there are some common challenges faced by autistic people. This self-help guide focuses on practical, proven techniques to help parents support their autistic children with commonly experienced areas of difficulty.

Written by authors with extensive experience in research and in working clinically with children with a wide range of neurodevelopmental differences, this book uses a strengths-based approach to guide parents in helping their children to enhance their skills, as well as to manage some common challenges.

This book will help you to:
· Support your child through anxiety and social interaction issues
· Manage sleep problems and feeding difficulties
· Understand sensory responses in autism
· Understand and manage distressed behaviour, including self-harm and demand avoidance

Helping Your Child is a series for parents and caregivers to support children through developmental difficulties, both psychological and physical. Each guide uses clinically proven techniques.

Series editors: Dr Polly Waite and Emeritus Professor Peter Cooper
