    Books about autism

    I’m looking for book recommendations to give a parent of an 11 year old just getting diagnosed with ASD. It’s been so many years since my son’s diagnosis, and I’m wondering if there are newer helpful resources than what I’m familiar with.
    Thanks!

        This is one of my favorites. It's more about hope than anything else. I don't know if it's appropriate in this case, but it has been a source of motivation for me. I am autistic, and my husband is as well. Most of my closest friends are autistic. We really don't see it as the end of the world...more as a different way of seeing the world. Anyway, here's a link to one of my favorites: https://www.amazon.com/Spark-Mothers.../dp/0812983564

          There are also some extremely helpful books by Temple Grandin. If they want to understand their autistic child's mind or teach their autistic child social skills, I would lean on Temple Grandin. She has been an immense help to us! I really did not understand why my husband and I approached problems so differently, but now I understand and appreciate why we are different.
