Making Autism a Gift: Inspiring Children to Believe in Themselves and Lead Happy, Fulfilling Lives

Making Autism a Gift: Inspiring Children to Believe in Themselves and Lead Happy, Fulfilling Lives Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Despite new research and increased public awareness, autism is still looked at in a negative light. Most books on the subject perpetuate this notion by saying that autism is bad or needs to be overcome, rather than highlighting the positive--for instance, many people with autism graduate from college, attain exciting careers, and lead happy, fulfilling lives. Making Autism a Gift emphasizes these positive realities and tears down the wall of isolation associated with this disorder. With information from hundreds of up-to-date sources, this practical book looks at the effects of autism on the individual and provides strategies parents can use to help their autistic children at home and beyond.

Book News Annotation:

In this resource for teachers and parents of autistic children, Cimera (special education, Kent State U.) shares a variety of strategies for helping these young people to maximize their potential as they lay the groundwork for success in their adult lives. Coverage includes strategies for addressing behavioral issues, self-stimulation, aggression, and communication difficulties. The overall tone is positive, and the unique strengths of people with autism are emphasized throughout. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:
