Children and Autism
Stories of Triumph and HopeeBook - 2011
Children and Autism presents seven heartwarming and compelling stories of children who have triumphed over the challenge of autism. These are not stories of easy or simple remedies but in the end in each instance the child is indistinguishable from their same-age peers. Parents can draw hope and inspiration from these stories while also realizing that dedication, hard work, and perseverance are key elements to success.
While these seven stories are the heart and soul of the book, Children and Autism is more than that. The book opens with a section on what autism and applied behavior analysis are. It closes with a comprehensive resource section that helps parent locate ABA resources, provides definitions, and offers advice on applying practices in the home.
Children and Autism is also a celebration of progress in treating autism using ABA. The book provides parents with a model that they can identify with, cheer on, and draw hope and inspiration from.
