Book – Raising Resilient Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: Strategies for Helping Them Maximize Their Strengths, Cope with Adversity, and Develop a Social Mindset, 2012. McGraw-Hill.

Drs. Brooks and Goldstein apply their approach to raising resilient children to youngsters with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). They describe the characteristics of children with ASD, the many challenges they and their parents and other caregivers face each day, and specific strategies for helping children with ASD to develop a “social resilient mindset,” a mindset that is associated with developing friendships, finding and identifying each child’s “islands of competence,” and developing those skills that will help youngsters on the autism spectrum become more successful and resilient.
