Questions Every Parent Has About Their Autistic Child; And The Answers... Autism is a complex disorder, and there really is no one singular way to discuss or define it. But there is one thing that is true across the board when it comes to autism: the number of questions parents have. I know what it's like to be unsure and worried about what to do for the best for a loved one with autism. I know all too well about the many challenges and frustrations that you are facing with your autistic child. When my son was diagnosed with autism in 2009, I scoured every book and website I could find looking for answers. And for every question answered, there always seemed to be three more questions related to the original, and on and on. Many resources I found were either out of date, or written with medical jargons that only doctors could understand. You probably have the same frustrations on your journey to understand autism. Fortunately you don't have to spend countless hours searching and verifying information like I did. I wrote this guide to cover a lot of the basic questions parents have, and a few you may have never thought of. If you'd like to have a better understanding of the reasons behind your autistic child's behaviors, so you can help your child more and take some of the pressure off you and the rest of your family then this is the guide for you. Here are just some of the things you will learn in "Raising Children with Autism: 100 Things Every Parent of an Autistic Child Must Know": - What are the characteristics of Autism? - What are the early warning signs of Autism that parents should look for? - How do I get my child evaluated? & Will insurance cover all this? - I want to have more children. Will they also be autistic? - What does Early Intervention entail? - How much therapy does my child really need? - What are "biomedical" treatments? - How dieting can help control autism naturally? - The effectiveness of the most common alternative autism treatments - What kind of services will the school district offer my child? - My child never sleeps! What can I do? - How to choose an ABA provider? - How to cope with the stress of raising an autistic child? - How to ensure the safety of my child? - Is joining a parent support group really beneficial? - Will my child ever marry or have children of their own? - And much more...

'A wise SatNav for what is often a bewildering, or even scary, zone of parenting. The book offers real-world, road-tested, child-first and family-friendly advice; while also highlighting the twin truths that autism is not a tragedy, and that adaptation and acceptance are not resignation' David Mitchell, bestselling author and co-translator of The Reason I Jump 'A must-read for anyone with an autistic child in their life' Laura James, author of Odd Girl Out The definitive guide for parents of autisic children, written from the perspective of neurodiversity. Written by Jessie Hewitson, an award-winning journalist at The Times, Autism is the book she wishes she had read when her son was first given the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. It combines her own experiences with tips from autistic adults, other parents - including author David Mitchell - as well as advice from autism professionals and academics such as Professor Simon Baron-Cohen. Autism looks at the condition as a difference rather than a disorder and includes guidance on: · What to do if you think your child is autistic · How to understand and support your child at school and at home · Mental health and autism · The differences between autistic girls and boys 'Jessie Hewitson has really hit the mark with this book, giving our history, our diversity, our challenges and our hopes. Autistic people and their families are finally represented' Carrie Grant 'Exceptionally useful and informative' Uta Frith, Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Development, UCL

Humanity is in a fast-forward stage of evolution. We saw this first with the Bridge Generation. For the past several decades, children are born into our world with various gifts and knowing – first introduced as Indigo Children and, as generations have passed, referred to as Crystalline Children, Star Children, and more. In these times, we bear witness to how consciousness and the minds of the future of humanity are changing in spectacular ways. This is a phenomenon that should not be ignored. Who are these amazing beings and why are they here? What is happening that causes some kids to remember where they came from, who they were in past lives, that they are natural healers, and so sensitive that they can’t keep still. How is it that they feel everything and can’t distinguish what feelings belong to them and what belongs to others? In this follow up to her bestselling book The Children of Now, Meg Losey revisits these spectacular children and discusses who they are becoming and how their growing influence is changing society for the better. The Children of Now Evolution addresses the following: • What is the magic of these children who embody unconditional love and have the foresight to see a new future for our people and our planet?• How do their minds work and why are they hyper-sensitive in some ways and desensitized in others?• Is our DNA changing and taking us into a new or different physiology?• What does autism, ADD, ADHD, bipolar disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome have to do with Crystalline Children and Star Kids, if anything? Why are so many kids being drugged?• Why are so many young adults falling off the edge into darker, more destructive thoughts and actions – from self-abuse with drugs to hurting themselves and worse?• How are vaccines, GMO in our foods contributing to mutating human biology, particularly our DNA?• How are we – society, parents, caregivers and guardians – failing to give these kids what they need? How can we? What will it take?• How can we structure our schools to meet the needs of these kids? Instead of surviving their educations, how can we help them to thrive? Losey offers concrete information for parents, schools, and others to understand what these kids need and how to help them function and flourish. Too often these children are mislabeled as ADD or ADHD or worse. She also addresses the metaphysical realities that these children (and others) perceive. There may not be monsters in the closet or under the bed, but these highly-evolved children may actually be “seeing” things that their parents or caregivers cannot. Finally, she paints a picture of what our world will look like when the “Children of Now” take over. With new research and reports from the field The Children of Now Evolution is even more important to the families of today and tomorrow.
