Re: how can I prepare my two and a half year old with traces of autism for a new baby
I have a nine year old with autism and had a baby when he was four and again when he was 8. I had a great book for him (being that he is so visual) by Dr Sears called Baby on the Way. It was great because it also teaches you how to taylor the book for individual kids. I got him as involved as I could in everything To be completely honest their was a tough period of adjustment after my the first of his siblings was born. It got worse for awhile before it got better, but it was so worth it and now that i have had another, he was so excited and loves him so very much. Infact he was the first person I called from the hospital to tell him his baby brother was born. If you have any other questions feel free to pm me, oh and for the record my son with autism is very high functioning so I think that helped.
