Description

Does your NT child understand his/her autistic parent?

National Parenting Product Award (NAPPA) Winner!

Mom's Choice Award Winner!

A parent with ASD can provide his or her children deep love and support, along with a perspective on the world that is wonderfully unique. At the same time, the emotional and physical demands of parenting can be taxing for someone with autism. For example, while a parent with ASD craves order, reason, and predictability, the experience of parenthood is inherently chaotic. Growing Together Across the Autism Spectrum: A Kid’s Guide to Living With, Learning From, and Loving a Parent With Autism Spectrum Disorder, tackles a topic that has received little attention – the relationship between a neurotypical child and a parent on the spectrum.

This illustrated children’s book provides a conversational starting point for families with a parent on the autism spectrum. While narrated from the perspective of a boy whose father has ASD and a mother who does not, his thoughts and questions apply equally to other variations of this family structure. 

This book fills a critical gap in resources for children and families with parents on the autism spectrum. It takes children’s feelings of love, confusion, and worry seriously and promotes mutual respect, affection, and accountability among family members. Overall, this title reflects the importance of every family member’s commitment to growing together.

MEET THE AUTHOR

Elizabeth Marks, MA, museum exhibition curator and graphic designer, grew up with a passion for the arts and humanities and perused these interests through college, graduating magna cum laude from Lawrence University, with a BA in English. During graduate school, Marks developed an interest in people, their creations, and their stories and has since made a career out of exploring human experiences and stories through the development of museum exhibitions. When faced with a spouse on the autism spectrum, a child in need of an explanation, a family in need of dialog, and no readily available resource on the topic, she decided to do what was familiar to her – create a story. Personal experience, traditional research, consultation with other families, and the writing process itself all contributed to her understanding of ASD and family dynamics.
