Right from the Start: A Practical Guide for Helping Young Children with Autism asserts that autistic children can be successful when parents and teachers understand key principles of autism and have the tools to help these children expand their social and emotional skills. This book explains the importance of self-regulation, the ability to moderate our feelings and reactions. In prioritising this essential skill, Right from the Start is an indispensable resource for parents, professionals, and educators. It describes practical strategies to help children manage their emotions and behaviour, learn social and play skills, and cope with challenging sensory experiences. With these techniques, we can lay a positive foundation that enables autistic children to be confident and successful in any environment.
