My Parent Has an Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Workbook for Children & Teens by Barbara R. Lester.
XFM Leste 2011
The workbook has been designed with precisely this purpose in mind. It will strengthen relationships between parents with ASDs and their children by facilitating understanding of behavior and situations that all the family will previously have noticed but not understood, and shows how to develop effective problem solving strategies. Chapters of this book cover everything from dealing with the initial diagnosis to understanding special interests, difficulties with social skills and figures of speech, and the need for rules and routines. Every chapter concludes with a worksheet for parent and child to complete together, which encourages mutual understanding and fosters healthy relationships.
