You are not alone
A parent's perspective on autism

"It's difficult to say how you might feel when the suspicion starts to creep up that your son or daughter might be difficult in some way.   Or it might be that the school or nursery are sharing concerns with you?"

This booklet, commissioned by Richmond & Kingston CCG's is a gentle introduction to understanding your child - whether or not you choose to seek a diagnosis.  The booklet is still very much in demand.

I was lead researcher and author for this booklet.   You can view the booklet via the images on the right.
