This new Australian Autism Handbook edition has integrated the many changes arising since its last publication, including changes in the language of autism, diagnoses, society, culture and agency. It has a chapter dedicated to girls, advice from autistic adults as well as getting started with the NDIS.
The authors Benison O’Reilly and Seana Smith are professional writers who both have children with autism, and their first-hand experience and research provides an indispensable one-stop manual for all Australian parents on raising a child on the autism spectrum.
