The Top 3 Autism books to read now for parents and caregivers

Books are our best friend. If you are a bibliophile like me, then before reaching out to ‘Google’ you will run to a nearby library. I have been in the Autism journey for the past 7 yrs and I have come across many books. Some were very theoretical which scared me more than helping me. Nevertheless, a few books have been really helpful. Either they have motivated and made me ponder to work better for my son or they have fed me with practical parenting help.

I would like to share 3 must-have books for your home library. I will add more in future posts.
