‘I like to imagine that this is the book I would have been able to buy when we first got Eddie’s diagnosis. It could have helped us through the early years of his life.’ From the foreword.
- Has your child recently been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)?
- Does your child sometimes experience difficulties at home or when they’re out and about?
- Would you like practical guidance on how to make things easier for your child – and for you?
If so, then this is the book for you!
Packed with easy-to-follow, practical strategies and customisable routines, this engaging and accessible handbook will help you and your child find ways to navigate the stresses of everyday life.
You’ll find routines and sample social stories™ to guide your child through each part of the day, from getting ready in the morning to winding down at night. Routines for medical visits, surviving trips to the supermarket, going to the hairdresser and getting through birthday parties are also included.
Trouble-shooting tips will offer a lifeline when things don’t quite go to plan. You’ll also find invaluable advice on communication, visual support and self-care.

Lesley Burton has developed her practical, upbeat and highly personalised approach over the last twenty years, as a public speaker, blogger, founder of a highly successful sensory toy business and, most importantly, as Mum to Eddie (who was diagnosed with ASD aged two).
