6 Books That Have Made Me A Better Autism Parent

This post does not contain any affiliate links just material that has helped me on my journey.

I have an office with a white bookshelf full of books. When we moved to our home just a few months back when COVID-19 hit, I wanted to bring all of my books with me as in our previous home the bookshelves were overflowing with all kinds of books. However, that was not possible because I had way too many books and not all of them would fit on the new bookshelf.

When I became a mom to Julian my oldest I read books, when I became Jaiden’s mom I read more books. Then he was diagnosed with epilepsy, autism and an intellectual disability I read lots and lots of books. I studied psychology and read a plethora of books. I had Sebastian my youngest and read children’s books, lots of them. Many of the books I’ve read over the years have shared amazing information. I absolutely love them all. There are a few most recently that have stuck with me as an autism parent. These few are the one I pick up over and over again.

My Favorite Books To Pick Up Over And Over Again:

1. No Fighting, No Biting, No Screaming: How to Make Behaving Positively Possible for People with Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities

In this book, I can totally relate to the parents and how the professionals explain in handling violent situations concerning your child.

2. Warfare: Winning the Spiritual

When I read this book, our family was on the verge of a breakdown because I was believing that it was all my fault. This book helped me to realize where the real battle lies.

3. Man’s Search for Meaning

This book is a must read for all humans. It is a book that helped me get back on track with life and to be grateful and change my mindset.

4. The Everyday Life Bible: The…

Love this bible as it has lots of explanations of the scriptures being presented with tips on enjoying your life more.

5. Let Me Hear Your Voice: A…

A must read for all parents that have newly diagnosed children with autism.

6. A Parent’s Guide to Autism: Practical Advice. Biblical Wisdom.

A great book by a man with autism who explains how his mom loved him, prayed for him, and helped him through some difficult situations during his childhood with autism.
