A light-hearted view of how autism impacts on an average household. Where the autistic child is totally oblivious to how their behaviour and actions appear to the outside world, and where the Carer, initially struggling with the challenges, and at times fumbling their way through, eventually comes to the realisation that by allowing the child to be their authentic self, everything else falls into place.
Linda’s first exposure to autism came from working with a specialist charity. Up to then she had no appreciation of the many shapes of autism, and from the experiences of this unique working environment, was able to identify the traits in her own grandchildren. One of whom the book is based on.
There is no right or wrong way of dealing with an autistic child and this book in no way suggests best practice or solutions to autistic behaviour. It is more about how we change our perceptions, and accept the uniqueness of our child.
