Practical interventions to reduce stress and anxiety and improve the wellbeing and development of children on the autism spectrum. Focusing on how to regulate the environment, nutrition, emotional self, and energy, the step-by-step approach includes exercises, recipes and a wealth of expert advice.
Presenting a revolutionary lifestyle approach for the whole family, this step-by-step guide will help you to reduce your child's stress and anxiety levels by regulating their environment, eating and nutrition, energy, and encouraging emotional self-regulation.
Children with autism often experience very high stress levels in learning and social environments, which can exacerbate problem behaviors and damage their physical and emotional health. This book demonstrates that lowering stress levels through regulating a child's experiences and environments, and giving them the tools to cope when stressful situations are unavoidable, can make a huge and very positive difference to their behavior, physical health, socialisation and happiness.
Brimming with exercises, recipes, tips and real-life examples, this warm and supportive guide will help you transform the life of your child with autism and benefit the whole family.
'Autism and the Stress Effect is a welcome book that distills much of the information about the internal noise of stress, pain or perhaps the chemical effects of a terrible diet and delivers a useful and digestible guide for our autism community to use to improve the care and nurturing of our children.'
