This book, Dads and Autism, was written by Emerson Donnell, son-in-law to Fuller Brush Divisional Director Joanne Rice.  She states it's not just for Dads nor only families of autistic children, but can also be of use to parents of children with other handicaps, such as Down's Syndrome.  He writes: "One of the greatest disappointments about children with autism is their inability to connect with other people. This is especially heartbreaking for the parent child relationship. Parents yearn to reach their child who is right in front of them, yet they have no idea how to go about it."  I highly recommend this book.
