Children with autism: a parents' guide
Michael D. Powers
Woodbine House, 1989 - Education - 368 pages
From the new parent coping with a child's recent diagnosis to one who's an experienced advocate, "Children With Autism" is a must-have reference. It is a trusted, respected source of information on autism and the other conditions within the spectrum of pervasive developmental disorder (PDD).
Now completely revised and updated, "Children with Autism" covers a multitude of special concerns, including daily and family life, early intervention, educational programs, legal rights, advocacy, and a look at the years ahead with a chapter on adults with autism. Parents can turn to this new edition for the latest information on current diagnostic criteria, Applied Behavior Analysis, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), autism advocacy via the internet, and much more.
Another important feature of the book is the group of parent statements found at the end of each chapter. Here the reader gains the perspective and support from many other parents who share their own family's experiences. Other helpful features include a glossary, reading and resource lists, and a delightful collection of photographs of children with autism scattered throughout the book.
