Grandparent’s Guide to Autism Spectrum Disorders: Making the Most of Time at Nana’s House
Most children fit almost instinctively into Grandma’s house – obeying, trying to please and finding their groove. Children with ASD have a harder time adjusting and even a brief visit can leave a grandparent mentally and physically exhausted. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Nancy Mucklow’s book serves as a practical guide to turning grandparents’ concern, confusion and initial sadness for their grandchild with ASD into a relationship of acceptance, confidence and realistic expectations. Full of intriguing and thought-provoking anecdotes and rules of thumb, Grandparent’s Guide to ASD includes tried-and-true recommendations on how to deal with sensory issues, new and unfamiliar environments, dietary considerations, emotional meltdowns, communication, selecting the right toys, participating in school and family events… and much more. More knowledgeable and better prepared after reading this positive and upbeat book, grandparents can stay relaxed as they use the helpful strategies that allow them to better connect with their special grandchild.
