Book Description: If your child -- or the child of a close friend or relative -- has just received a diagnosis of autism, you are probably feeling baffled and overwhelmed. It is never easy to learn that someone you love has a serious health or developmental condition. Nothing is quite the same after the diagnosis comes in from the doctor. Many families report mixed feelings of sadness and relief when their child is diagnosed. You may feel completely overwhelmed. You may also feel relieved to know that the concerns you have had for your child are valid. An entire world changes just at the diagnosis, but there is hope for both the parents and the child. Whatever it is you feel, know that thousands of parents share this journey. You are not alone. There is reason to hope. There is help. Now that you have the diagnosis, the question is, where do you go from here? The first step is to learn eveything you can about autism. The author decided to write this book for parents all over the world who have an autistic child, to be a guide for them, and to inform them that they are not alone. Their child is not the only one. There are millions children all over the world just like their child. Dr. Deena Moustafa, PhD was born in Cairo, Egypt on 13th of March, 1978. She grew up between Cairo, Egypt & Saarland, Germany and graduated in 1999. She completed her postgraduate diploma in 2001 graduating with honors, obtained a Master s degree in Developmental Psychology in 2005 and a PhD in Psychology in 2009. Dr. Denna Moustafe, PhD tells us that even if we are normal, we still feel some of the same things children with autism feel. Who hasn t been bothered by the feel of scratchy clothes against the skin? Who hasn t gagged on a partially uncooked slimey egg white or on another unsavory distasteful food? Who hasn t been distracted by a loud noise or troubled by the things that lurk in the dark and silence of the night. We are all different, but we are still the same. We are part of a single world where knowledge brings understanding and where books like this one offer hope, practical advise and encouragement. No one is alone!
