This section is for the major resources for the beginner and expert alike.  It can be SO hard to hear that diagnosis, but a little bit of reading will help you know that you are NOT ALONE in dealing with this.  It may not be the road we pictured ourselves on, but it's a well worn path.  We've planted our flowers to make the journey easier, if you find any gems, please share them for the sake of the person behind you.

Books for Understanding Children with Autism

It goes without saying the most cost-effective way to obtain these books is through the library and borrowing from other parents and professionals. Some books are mainstream and can be found in national bookstore chains. For the ones that aren't, most of them can be ordered from ARI, Future Horizons and some chapters of the Autism Society of America.
