Hi everyone. I am a parent of a 13 year old daughter with ASD. I am also a child psychiatrist and autism expert. I felt compelled to write a book to help parents and so I wrote Caring for Autism with Oxford University Press. I believe it is a tremendous resource for parents. It includes causes, assessment, diagnosis, treatment with meds/therapies/alternative therapies and meds, navigating the educational system, legal issues, and spiritual/religious issues.
