Summary "New hope for parents raising a child with autism spectrum disorders. In Raising Resilient Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, noted psychologists and bestselling authors Dr. Goldstein and Dr. Brooks teach you the strategies and mindset necessary to help your child develop strength, hope, and optimism. This is the first approach for autism spectrum disorders based in the extremely popular field of positive psychology. Drs. Brooks and Goldstein--world-renowned experts on child psychology and, specifically, resilience--offer you practical tips for long-term solutions rather than just quick fixes. Featuring dozens of stories and an easy-to-follow, prescriptive narrative, Drs.
