When one of your children has Autism Spectrum Disorder, the whole family is affected and it has an impact on every area of life: sleep, scheduling, emotional and mental health, finances, food, holidays, clothing, education, and more!

Never Give Up: Riding the Emotional Rollercoaster of an Autism Parent” is the deeply personal story of Monique’s introduction to autism through her daughter’s diagnosis at the age of 3 and the lessons she has learned as the parent of not one, but two, autistic children. It is the story of high hopes, shattered dreams, and the constant struggle to learn how to love and nurture their precious children and stay sane and hopeful in the face of daily challenges that every parent of an autistic child faces.

A wonderful book for parents and carers of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, but also for parents and carers of children with any sort of additional needs. Anyone who has been through the highs and low of the emotional journey when you discover that your child will face more challenges in life than most will be able to relate to Monique’s journey with her family.

Our twenty-first century world is not made for autistic children (or adults) and, despite the increasing rate of diagnosis, many people have no idea what autism actually looks like or the impact it has on the whole family.Eating. Playing. Getting dressed. Going shopping. Special occasions at school. Interruptions to imaginary play. Family events. There is always the sense of: “What is going to happen next?” which adds extra tension to the day when you are with an autistic child.

After writing a series of children’s books to explain her daughter’s condition to her kindergarten class Monique now writes regularly about what might be helpful for other families grappling with a diagnosis of autism. Now Monique has written of her own experience of being an Autism parent. “Never Give Up!” is the honest story about her families’ autism journey with tips and tricks they have learned along the way.
