Overview of 1,001 Tips for the Parents of Autistic Girls: Everything You Need to Know About Diagnosis, Doctors, Schools, Taxes, Vacations, Babysitters, Treatments, Food, and More

Research shows that at least one in 110 American children now has an autism spectrum disorder. While autism affects more boys than girls, parents of autistic girls face unique challenges, often spending countless hours looking for the latest information to help their children. For those parents, Tony Lyons presents the essential guide to parenting a girl with autism. Assembling what he has learned from professionals, other parents, and his own experiences with his daughter, he offers recommendations such as:

#73: Remember the phrase "appropriate education." Your daughter is entitled to a free appropriate public education. If you local school authority cannot provide, they must cover the cost of an APPROPRIATE private school. Appropriate does not mean best! Keep this in mind. The Supreme Court interprets an appropriate education plan as one that "must be reasonably calculated to provide educational benefit to the individual child."

#765: Body odors. Teach your daughter to change into fresh underwear both at bedtime and in the morning. This helps keep the body fresh and free of odors.

#812: Keep feminine hygiene products in every bathroom and a set in the glove box of your car in case your child's period appears unexpectedly. Early on, periods may be unpredictable.

#829: Relationship boundaries are difficult concepts for girls on the spectrum and must be taught and practiced. First, your daughter needs to learn about different types of relationships (i.e., husband, wife, close friend, colleague, neighbor, shopkeeper). Then, she needs to be taught the concept of appropriate types of conversations and behaviors for the different relationships.
