Raising Resilient Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders is the first approach for autism spectrum disorders based in the extremely popular field of positive psychology. Through the authors’ groundbreaking research, the book breaks new ground by teaching the importance of resilience to parents, making it palatable and practical and effective for the long term. Eminent psychologists Dr. Goldstein and Dr. Brooks teach parents the strategies and mindset necessary to help children with autism spectrum disorders facing adversity to develop strength, hope, and optimism. Featuring dozens of stories and an easy-to-follow, prescriptive narrative, Drs. Brooks and Goldstein demonstrate how to apply resilience to every parenting practice when raising children with autism spectrum disorders, preparing them for the challenges of today’s complicated, ever-changing world, and helping them develop essential social skills.

Raising Resilient Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders:

  • Empowers children to problem-solve on their own and learn from mistakes rather than feel defeated by them
  • Teaches parents how to discipline while instilling self-worth, and how to build an alliance with their children’s schools
  • Offers practical tips for long-term solutions rather than just quick fixes

Drs. Brooks and Goldstein provide parents with the tools they need to instill social resilience in their children and help them communicate with others, make friends, embrace optimism, and most importantly, to be happy.
