Recognising that your child is autistic is a pivotal moment for parents and carers. While it can lead to positives in terms of understanding behaviour and accessing support, the diagnostic process itself can be a huge source of anxiety, stress, guilt and worry.

But it's going to be ok - because right here you have the ultimate guidebook to navigating the emotions and challenges that these early stages present.

From weathering the initial impact of a potential diagnosis, to self-care strategies and finding new parameters for success, reading this book is like being taken by the hand and shown how to look after your own mental health while supporting your child. Each chapter is full of guidance from someone who's been where you are now, and tells you what you really need to know so you can journey from panic and uncertainty to confidence, acceptance and strength.
