Jill Stacey, Maggi Golding, eds.
Raising an autistic child comes with its own unique set of challenges, not least of which is dealing with the constant scrutiny of your parenting. This collection of stories from all corners of the globe celebrates the love, commitment and advocacy work of mothers of autistic people. As they watch their children enter adult life, these mothers speak out about the highs and lows of family life and societal shifts in attitudes to autism.

Putting to bed the belief that autism is a result of poor parenting, this book not lets parents know they are part of a supportive global community, reveals both the differences in cultural attitudes and the universality of the autism experience, and champions autistic people and their families.

Jill Stacey was the founding director of Autism South Africa (ASA).

Maggi Golding is an educational consultant in autism, TEACCH trainer and national coordinator for Makaton South Africa.
