Different Roads to Learning is thrilled to announce the release of our latest publication, Responsible and Responsive Parenting in Autism: Between Now and Dreams.
Written by Shahla Ala’i-Rosales, Ph.D., BCBA-D and Peggy Heinkel-Wolfe, MA., this book explores the role and responsibility parents face when navigating the treatment and care of their autistic child. Built on the three essential principles of Learning, Connecting, and Loving, Ala’i-Rosales and Heinkel-Wolfe offer guidance and a pathway for parents that is filled with hope and agency for their children. This Responsible and Responsive autism parenting book can be an excellent addition to parent education sessions or a parent-resource library. In their own words:
“We have a responsibility to raise our children with autism as best we can. Parents cannot sidestep this journey. This work is part of how we all develop as humans—nurturing children in ways that honor their humanity and invite full, rich lives. We offer this book as a roadmap for a joyful and sustainable journey. The essence of this journey relies on three powers; learning, connecting, and loving. Each power informs the other. Each amplifies the other. And each power is essential for meaningful and courageous parenting.”
