It seems that nearly everyone knows a family with an autism spectrum child. ^Most recent figures suggest that the prevalence of all autism spectrum disorders ^in the United States is an astonishing 1% of the population in the United States, ^translating to twelve million parents and grandparents that are seeking answers. ^

There are many books available on how to cure an autistic preschooler, but ^none on how to raise one to adulthood. These promised cures raise parents' hopes, ^but most parents will find that they are dealing with a lifelong challenge no matter ^what they do. Dr. Laura Hendrickson is a trained psychiatrist, biblical counselor-and ^the mother of an autistic child. She understands the struggles parents face as they ^try to communicate with their autism spectrum child and manage behavior challenges. 

With ^an approach that is grounded in a deep understanding of the challenges those caring ^for autism spectrum children face, Finding Your Child's Way on theAutism ^Spectrum gives the reader sound, practical tools for understanding how to guide ^an autism spectrum child to function more fully as the person God created them to ^be.


"Oh, the joy when he finally got it!"


Laura Hendrickson knows ^the challenges and victories of raising a child on the autism spectrum.


She ^believes your child has been uniquely made by God. And rather than wishing your ^child could be like everyone else, you can instead begin to hope that he'll grow ^up to be the adult God designed him to be, differences and all.


Dr. Hendrickson ^discusses social skills, rituals, friends, options for education and career, managing ^emotions, discipline, and more. You'll learn the importance of lavish praise and ^quiet correction, gentle pressure to learn, firm limits and consistency, and discipleship. ^


And wherever your child is on the autism spectrum, whether high or low functioning, ^verbal or nonverbal, you'll find helpful and hopeful information so you too can ^know the joy of your child "getting it" in his or her own unique way.




DR. LAURA HENDRICKSON (MD, Michigan State University College of ^Human Medicine; Diplomate, American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology) is a biblical ^counselor, former psychiatrist, and the mother of an adult son who has recovered ^from autism. She is a member of the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors ^and is author of Finding Your Child's Way on the Autism Spectrum, Will Medicine ^Stop the Pain? and co-author of When Good Kids Make Bad Choices. She ^lives in Southern California with her husband, Daniel.

This book presents autism spectrum disorders as a different developmental ^pathway rather than a disability. With an approach that is grounded in a deep understanding ^of the challenges those caring for autism spectrum children face, it gives the reader ^sound, practical tools for guiding an autism spectrum child to function more fully ^as the person God created him to be.




Finding Your Child's Way on the Autism Spectrum will help the reader ^to understand the varying degrees of symptoms and the individuality of each child. ^Laura's experience with and commitment to raising her own son s one of her greatest ^assets in her mission to help other parents. Using her medical, parental, and theological ^backgrounds, she walks the reader through some very practical help and hope, regardless ^of where one's child may fall on the continuum.
-Dr. Stuart Scott, associate ^professor of Biblical Counseling; director, Center for Biblical Counseling, The ^Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
