“Dealing with Autism takes you on one family’s journey.
Through the eyes of the author/mother you will experience the hurt, anger and joy she felt as she navigates the Australian school system. Habelrih offers hope along with suggestions and resources.
A bonus to this book is the section written by her daughter. The siblings perspective is valuable because often we aren’t sure how they will feel living with an autistic brother or sister. Will there be resentment, rebellion or fly from the nest before they are ready just to get away?
A good book to read as an educator, parent or friend of someone who has an autistic child. ” – Amazon Reviewer
