Advice for healthcare providers from a nurse with autism



Anita Lesko, BSN, RN, MS, CRNA

As a mother of a daughter diagnosed with autism and related disabilities, I am so pleased to announce the publication of Anita Lesko's much needed book. It should be required reading for nursing, nurse practitioner, medical and allied healthcare students. It would also make a wonderful gift for parents to give to their child's healthcare provider.


The book provides quality advice from a nurse with autism! 

"The book is geared for use in healthcare curriculum courses, as well as a guidebook for all healthcare and allied healthcare providers. It's important for healthcare professionals to realize that communication starts at the Admissions Desk and follows through to the patient's discharge, Whether the patient is simply going for a routine doctor's appointment, or getting admitted for major surgery, the autism patient needs specialize care for optimal results."

"This book is a comprehensive guide in understanding autism, formulating effective communication strategies, and developing best care practices. It covers sensory issues, pain tolerance, body awareness, communication challenges, legal and ethical issues, HIPPA compliance and the Americans with Disabilities Act." 


Congratulations Anita! 

Cheers!
