Personal insights into parenting and autism
15 February 2011
Renitha Tutin, a Teaching Associate in the Department of Accounting and Finance, has published a book – part memoir, part guide – on caring for a child with autism.
My Child is Autistic is designed, says Tutin, ‘to give hope to parents and anyone who offers support to an autistic child’.
‘This is exactly the sort of book I would have liked to have read when my son was diagnosed with autism at the age of three,’ she says. ‘We’ve been very successful with the strategies we have come up with for our child, and I’m hoping it will make a difference to anyone else who tries them.’
You can read the first chapter via the 'look inside' feature on the book’s Amazon webpage.
