Engaging Autism: Using the Floortime Approach to Help Children Relate, Communicate, and Think (Merloyd Lawrence Book) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Grateful parents and professionals worldwide have welcomed this essential guide to the highly recommended Floortime approach for treating children with any of the autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Now available in paperback, Engaging Autism includes new, exciting information on neuroscience research into the effects of this approach, plus guidance for parents navigating the controversies surrounding the treatment of autism.

Unlike approaches that focus on changing specific behavior, Greenspans program promotes the building blocks of healthy emotional and behavioral development. He shows that, remarkably, children with ASD do not have a fixed, limited potential, and may often join their peers to lead full, psychologically healthy lives. The Floortime approach can also be applied at any age—including early infancy, when the first signs of risk for ASD may appear—so that preventing the full development of autism becomes a real possibility.

Synopsis:

From the authors of the timeless classic "The Child with Special Needs" comes their long-awaited landmark guide to autism and autistic spectrum disorders (ASD).
