Most children fit almost instinctively into Grandma's house - obeying, trying to please and finding their groove. Children with ASD have a harder time adjusting and even a brief visit can leave a grandparent mentally and physically exhausted. But it doesn't have to be that way! Nancy Mucklow's book serves as a practical guide to turning grandparents' concern, confusion and initial sadness for their grandchild with ASD into a relationship of acceptance, confidence and realistic expectations. Full of intriguing and thought-provoking anecdotes and rules of thumb, Grandparent's Guide to ASD includes tried-and-true recommendations on how to deal with sensory issues, new and unfamiliar environments, dietary considerations, emotional meltdowns, communication, selecting the right toys, participating in school and family events... and much more. More knowledgeable and better prepared after reading this positive and upbeat book, grandparents can stay relaxed as they use the helpful strategies that allow them to better connect with their special grandchild.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"There have been other wonderful essays and stories, but this is a 'how-to' that addresses all the different grandparenting styles and family dynamics. Indeed, Nancy Mucklow includes aspects of grandparenting that never even occurred to me before reading this book. This is a must-read for grandparents, their children, all teachers and counselors. -- Susan J. Moreno "CEO and Founder, OASIS@MAAP Services for Autism and Asperger Syndrome"
"The scenarios at the beginning of each chapter strike right to the heart of REAL situations. Families need facts and real situations, rather than theory. They will receive an abundance of those real situations and facts in this book. Grandparent's Guide... has been needed in our community for many, many years..." -- Susan J. Moreno "Amazon"
"With no-nonsense information delivered in clear, readable prose, Grandparent's Guide to Autism Spectrum Disorders is indispensable for grandparents of the newly diagnosed. Can meltdowns be avoided? How do I talk to my friends about my grandchild with ASD? These topics and many more are addressed in a way that'll make grandparents more competent." -- Susan Adcox "Amazon"
"Being a grandparent myself, I know that our expectation is often that the grandparent's role will be one that is a little bit parent, a little bit teacher and a little bit best friend. We figure that we can relax, enjoy and have fun, leaving the heavy lifting for the parents..." -- Donna Owens "Amazon"
