Your child has been diagnosed with autism. Now what? When a child is diagnosed with autism, parents find themselves navigating insurance law, special education services, and therapy options. Wouldn’t it be easier to have all of this information in one, easy-to-read book?
The Autism Helpbook gives parents the tools they need in order to help their child thrive. Written in conversational language, The Autism Helpbook offers practical advice on self-care, obtaining a diagnosis, insurance and Medicaid, biomedical interventions, therapies, education, preparing for adolescence and adulthood, legal considerations and life with autism. Written by a mother of a 16-year-old boy with autism, this book offers practical advice for parents, caregivers, and professionals in an unintimidating manner.
Rather than spending years learning to navigate systems of care, parents can use this book as a tool to hit the ground running and get their child the services they need in a timely fashion. The only book on the market of its kind, The Autism Helpbook is THE resource guide for parents, family members, and professionals.

"In The Autism Helpbook, Sarah Carrasco breaks down the daunting tasks of navigating autism from a parent's perspective. It is in this understanding that parents find the answers that leads to better health for the child, and well-being for the family."
"Sarah Carrasco has written a wonderful, helpful book on all aspects of caring for a child with autism. A first of it's kind! She covers every topic a parent needs support with - getting a diagnosis, finding help in healing your child (and yes, it IS possible), navigating insurance and school services- step by step.
I so wish I had this book years ago when my son was first diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. All parents of children with ASD need the wisdom and direction found in Ms. Carrasco's book."
