Children and young people with autism have the capacity to be independent and resilient which can help them live independently or be supported to live a fulfilling life and reach their full potential.

This book empowers parents of autistic children aged two to ten to help them promote resilience in their child. Full of suggestions and simple activities, this easy-to-use resource will help guide parents on how to build the foundations of resilience and independence for situations such as school, new environments and relationships with other children. It includes information about the main developmental stages for children on the autism spectrum, and will take parents through life events and milestones at different ages and identify where difficulties and barriers to resilience may arise and how to address them.
