The definitive guide for parents of children with Autism.

About the Author

Jessie Hewitson is a staff property and personal finance writer on The Times from London. Before working at The Times, she worked as a freelance journalist, writing for The Sunday Times and the Telegraph, and edited Tatler magazine's 2013 guide to the best doctors. She is a mother of two; her seven-year-old son is autistic.


Jessie Hewitson's guide is 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 JumpA must-read for anyone with an autistic child in their life. - Laura James, author of Odd Girl OutIt is marvellous and covers everything a parent should know in supporting their autistic child. I have advised all my consultant colleagues at the Lorna Wing Centre to recommend it to parents of newly diagnosed parents. - Judith Gould, lead consultant at the Lorna Wing Centre for Autism.Exceptionally useful and informative. - Uta Frith, Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Development, UCLIt is incredibly useful and informative, full of new research and interviews that put right an awful lot of misinformation. I cannot recommend this highly enough. - The SunJessie Hewitson really hits the mark with this book, giving our history, our diversity, our challenges and our hopes. Autistic people and their families are finally represented. - Carrie GrantAn important book that will no doubt become an invaluable source of support for any parent who suspects - or has been told - that their child has autism... While its practical advice does not soften or shy away from any of the difficulties that await parents - this is a book that celebrates difference and champions happiness. - Ambitious About Autism (from their foreword)If you're going to buy an autism parenting book, please make it this one. The language used is positive, with talk of differences and not deficits. What is often described as "problem behaviour" in other books is reframed here (more accurately) as the result of an autistic person communicating there is a problem. This approach is going to be far more helpful. - Autistic & Cheerful Blog
