Autism Supporting Difficulties: Handbook of ideas to reduce anxiety in everyday situations, by Gaynor M. Jackson, pub. Matador

This is the book that parents of autistic children everywhere have been crying out for. Jackson has used her considerable knowledge, gained through specialist studies and working directly with children and parents, to develop strategies to prevent antisocial behaviour.

Jackson also presents planning and methods aimed at reducing stress and anxiety for all involved when doing everyday activities, such as shoe shopping or going to the dentist. The book helps to avoid the anxiety of these situations in children, which can lead to long term fear and low self esteem.
