Book Suggestions for Parents of Spectrum Children #Autism

*This post contains Amazon affiliate links. 

As a mommy of an autistic child, one of the questions that I get asked the most is, "Do you have any recommended reading for parents of newly diagnosed kiddos?" Full disclosure? I am a busy lady and I hardly find time to read a book cover to cover. Most of my questions are answered by internet searches or from asking questions in online Spectrum support groups.

However, I do have a few suggestions to share with you and I also asked some of my fellow "Autmoms" and "Autdads" to help add to this list! 

For more information on the books, click on the title directly under the cover.

What is your go-to way to find information?

    Usually Google, but I look up things to read further. I still like books, something I can take notes on, attach sticky notes and highlight fir future reference.
