Do you know someone with an autism spectrum disorder? Do you wish you better understood this perplexing disorder that has significantly increased over the past few years? Has your child become one of the one-in-88 children in the United States diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder?
Each child with an autism spectrum disorder is unique and special. Like a snowflake, no child with autism is exactly like any other child. No child should be placed in a "one size fits all "category or be viewed as a problem. Rather, we must embrace the uniqueness of each child and nurture his/her hidden possibilities and potential.
Drs. Irene L. Schulz and Margaret S. Texidor have applied their collective backgrounds and expertise in education, counseling, nursing and scientific research to examine the most pressing issues on autism. They explore educational and family issues, appropriate therapies, and future possibilities. The authors reframe the general perspective on autism from a deficit model to an asset model, demonstrating that children along the autism spectrum could greatly contribute to enhancing the quality of life, not only for themselves, but for all of society.
