Autism is a condition which renders the sufferer incapable of understanding meaning "beyond the information given." The autistic person has a purely literal relationship with reality and has difficulty in developing imagination. The author of this insightful book regards autistic people as "hyperrealist" in a world of "surrealism" that we call "normal". This book not only provides a deep understanding of the condition to help caregivers to adapt to the autistic person's way of thinking, but also offers practical intervention strategies for education and treatment. The numerous quotes from parents and autistic people throughout the book provide the reader with very valuable insights.
