Parenting Teenage Boys with Autism:
Supportive Strategies for Independence

Kindle Cover - Parenting Teenage Boys with Autism.jpg

When your autistic teen is having a meltdown, what do you do?

And is it possible to prevent the meltdowns from happening?

The good news is that, yes, some techniques and strategies can prevent your teen from experiencing meltdowns and help them and you through it if they do occur.

As your autistic child ages into their teens, their needs and wants change, and there are new challenges. Even hygiene becomes an issue through puberty and getting an autistic teen to shower and put on deodorant can be a challenge in itself!

Socializing becomes more important than ever; they may start to have thoughts and feelings about romance and relationships, and you need to know how to manage all these new things.

Then, once you are through the worst of the teen years, you need to think about your teen's future.

Will they join the workforce, and how do you help them through that process?

Will they be independent enough to leave home?

Can you teach them independence?

So many questions, and thankfully, this book will answer them for you and give you the tools you need to help your teen through these difficult years.

Best of all, they will help you as well because when it comes to letting them go out in the big bright world, it can be tough to cut those strings.

Delve into this book and see that there is hope for the future with the right skills and techniques.
