Kennedy Krieger Institute's Dr. Rebecca Landa has authored the introduction to Chicken Soup for the Soul: Raising Kids on the Spectrum: 101 Inspirational Stories for Parents of Children with Autism and Asperger's, available at booksellers nationwide on April 2, 2013.
Proceeds raised from book sales will support research efforts at Kennedy Krieger's Center for Autism & Related Disorders that are aimed at uncovering the earliest signs of an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in baby siblings of children already diagnosed with an ASD. Learn more about early detection research at Kennedy Krieger.
When your child is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, your life changes and you embark on a voyage that is all-consuming. Whether your child has autism or Asperger's, to use the old terms, or has ASD, to use the new one, you develop a vocabulary filled with acronyms, therapies, and theories.
These revealing, personal stories will inspire you, educate you, make you laugh, and make you cry as you share in the experiences of other parents and caregivers in the ASD community.
