Description:
How parents can appreciate their autistic children prevent them from being pathologized, over-medicated, and marginalized In this groundbreaking book, William Stillman, an expert and passionate advocate on behalf of those with autism, offers a commonsense guide for parenting children with autism. He gives mothers and fathers, caregivers, and teachers the information they need to recognize the child with autism's unique personality, passions, and intellect and therefore liberate them from today's culture of fear. He shows why the current conventional incentive and reward systems send the wrong message to kids with autism and just don't work. This book offers a sensible ten-step guide for enriching relationships with kids with autism through a belief in their essential competence.
* Includes information that liberates parents from the culture of fear surrounding autism * Explains how kids with autism are intelligent but may have unconventional methods of communication that need to be understood and appreciated * Shows why your child doesn't need traditional therapy or medication to 'treat' autism * Written by an acclaimed expert on the topic of autism, who is himself an adult with Asperger's Syndrome
