A Parent's Guide To Autism: A Parents Guide To Autismby Charles Hart, Claire Zion (Editor)
If you suspect - or know - that you are a parent of a child with autism, you face a unique challenge and set of concerns: Can my child's condition improve? Am I
The neurological disorder called autism has produced more questions than answers in medical science - and more misguided notions than actual facts about the realities of living with an autistic person.
If you suspect - or know - that you are a parent of a child with autism, you face a unique challenge and set of concerns: Can my child's condition improve? Am I somehow responsible for his autism? Will she be able to interact with other children? How can I prepare my child for adulthood?
A Parent's Guide to Autism, presented in a question-and-answer format that most efficiently addresses your concerns, offers clear and reassuring advice on:
- Symptoms and types of autism - what to look for as your child develops
- Possible causes of autism, including up-to-date, vital information on genetic links
- Therapy options, and the pros and cons of sensory integration, audial, physical, and Daily Life therapies, as well as educational approaches
- Treatment Alternatives and warnings against inappropriate medications
- Facilitated Communication - how it has helped children with autism express themselves
- Choosing a school that sees your child as an individual, not a label.
