Description

 

"New edition of the Australian Autism Handbook highlights important changes for families".
 
There have been many changes to the autism landscape with respect to funding, diagnosis, science and interventions since the ground-breaking Australian Autism Handbook was first published in 2008.  One of the most notable changes is to the ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) diagnosis under the DSM-5, which is the loss of Asperger’s as a standalone diagnosis.   Just how will this effect Australian families?
 
With the upcoming federal election, will a new government reduce or increase the amount of funding available to Australian families?  The current funding received has, without question, assisted thousands of families in accessing early intervention programs.
 
The second edition of the Australian Autism Handbook, by Benison O’Reilly and Kathryn Wicks, is the only complete guide to every aspect of raising a child with an autism spectrum disorder in Australia.  It offers guidance, expert advice and above all support to parents and health professionals from the early signs and symptoms of ASD through diagnosis, the intervention programs, medical theories and schooling.  It also contains the most comprehensive state-by-state guide to the resources available for ASD families in Australia.
 
Written by Benison O’Reilly and Kathryn Wicks, who are professional writers and both have children with autism.  They know from first-hand experience the essential information parents need to know to raise your ASD child.  Both are highly recommended for interview ex-Sydney.
