by Dr Barry M Prizant
We all have different coping strategies. Think about the behaviours associated with autism? Hand flapping, spinning, rocking, a restricted range of interests. A lot of current thinking aims to eliminate these behaviours. But what if they are strategies to cope, to adapt and to communicate your emotions? What if the current thinking is just treating an autistic person as a problem to be solved rather than an individual to be understood? Dr Prizant draws on his four decades of experience from working in the field of autism to present his thoughts and suggestions for helping those with autism to live more fulfilling lives and to help their relatives find a greater understanding.
We now have this book available to borrow in our library, along with a wide range of other books on autism and other special needs. Why not take a look at our book list?
