Book Review - Making Sense of Sex
Making Sense of Sex: A Forthright Guide to Puberty, Sex and Relationships for People with Asperger’s Syndrome is written by Sarah Attwood and illustrated by Jonathon Powell. This book review includes a summary of topics covered in the book and my critique and recommendation.

Structure, Schedule and Autism Spectrum Disorders
Creating structure and schedules for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are important. Clear understanding of structure, routine, and schedule are essential to limiting anxiety and frustration and have benefits both at home and at school.

Explaining Asperger's Syndrome to Children
Explaining labels and diagnoses to a child with Asperger's can be frightening and frustrating. Each family's experience is unique, but there are resources available to help families who want to discuss Asperger's and Autism Spectrum Disorders with their children.

Executive Functioning and Autism
Children on the autism spectrum often struggle with executive functioning. Parents play a valuable role in identifying and helping children manage and improve weak executive functioning skills. Steps can be taken at home and school to improve the skills necessary to manage tasks and projects.

Education and Our Child With Asperger's
Every child's educational needs are different. After years of frustration, our family finally found the best educational fit for our child with Asperger's Syndrome. In Part 2 of my article, I discuss our decision to seek alternative education for our son, and how we finally found success.

Educating Our Child With Asperger's
Every child's educational needs are different. After years of frustration, our family finally found the best educational fit for our child with Asperger's Syndrome. In Part 1 of my article, I discuss the first few years of preschool and elementary school.

Path to an Autism Diagnosis
The path to diagnosis and treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) is not one-size-fits-all. Some children are more obviously affected by ASD and are diagnosed and begin treatment more quickly. Others may wait several years for the signs and symptoms to become more obvious and impactful.

Holidays and Breaks in Routine
Holidays and the break in routine and structure can be frustrating for many families of children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Sensory sensitivities are heightened. With some planning and patience, parents can enjoy the holidays and limit the negative impact on children and themselves.

Finding Support
Parenting a child on the autism spectrum can feel isolating and overwhelming. It is important to develop healthy, supportive relationships with people who understand the daily and lifelong challenges of parenting a child with special needs.

Dietary Challenges for Children with Autism
Diet and feeding issues are a huge challenge for many children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Whether the issue is medical, developmental, or sensory, there are many resources available for helping parents identify and manage dietary challenges.
