Understanding Your Child with Autism
A Themed Bundle of Expert Sessions from the 2018 Parenting Autism Summit
In 2018, we brought together 32 of the world’s experts on autism and parenting for the Parenting Autism Summit. They shared the most effective approaches and strategies to help kids with autism and their parents. This is a portion of that summit.
In this bundle, our experts share information about the core challenges of autism, how experiences can be traumatizing for people with autism, brain differences and the effects they have on behavior, flexible thinking, common disorders that co-occur with autism, the sensory challenges your kids may be encountering, and how the autistic experience is different for girls.
Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder. Understanding the gifts and challenges will help you better understand your child so you can help them succeed.
If you want to better understand your child's brain and behavior, you need this Parenting Autism Summit Bundle.
