Understanding Your Child with Autism
A Bundle of Expert Sessions from the 2018 & 2019 Parenting Autism Summits
Each year, we gather the best and brightest minds in autism and parenting to help parents empower their children with autism so they can thrive.
This bundle contains a curated subset of the interviews from those summits, all about understanding the autistic brain and how it shapes your child.
You will learn about:
— the core challenges of autism,
— brain differences and the effects they have on behavior,
— common disorders that co-occur with autism,
— how the autistic experience is different for girls
— what people with autism wish their parents knew,
— the features of less obvious autism, and
— the intersection between giftedness and autism.
Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder. Understanding the gifts and challenges will help you better understand your child so you can help them succeed.
If you want to better understand how your child's brain-based differences drive behavior, you need to watch these sessions.
