By giving a concise account of what life may be like following the diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorders (ASDs) in the family, "Living with Autistic Spectrum Disorders" examines service provision at different stages, and provides information for parents, carers and practitioners. Parents want support and advice during and after a diagnosis of ASDs, and professionals want to be able to give the right answers. "Living with Autistic Spectrum Disorders" will meet the needs of both. Issues dealt with include: how to help the family; how to help brothers and sisters; preparing children with ASDs for the world outside; keeping expectations high; how to work together with schools and other agencies; and finding community links.
