 Full Description: 
This book walks parents through the issues to consider and steps to take in the first 12 months after learning their child may have autism. Written by a parent, the information is presented in non-technical language and acknowledges the emotional struggles parents often experience as they learn about their child’s disability. Here is how the book is described on movparent.com, a website of Parent magazine:

“This book is layed out in a day-by-day and month-by-month format, with topics that cover living and learning.

As the author says at the beginning, you don't have to follow a strict guideline of doing things in that format, it may take some people more time and others less time to cover everything in this book.

The author prioritizes what you need to learn and cover from the moment of diagnosis and forward. She covers the top ten essential actions, financial planning, the child's educational needs and much more. The book also has milestones to mark and celebrate throughout the book.
This book would be a huge help to parents just learning about their child's autism.”

The author, Nancy Wiseman, is the director of a non-profit organization, “First Steps,” and has other products to share. Click on the “Web Links” to learn more about this book, it’s author, and the organization.
