Abstract:

"Educating and caring for an autistic child is a severely difficult task, too often associated with frustration and disappointment. As a result, autism is widely assumed to be a condition which places the child's inner development beyond the reach of parents and carers." "Autism, a Holistic Approach challenges this assumption, quoting case studies where curative education based on a holistic approach has resulted in marked improvements in the autistic individual's behaviour and social integration." "The authors cite their own practical experiences with these therapies, as well as the findings of other experts in the field to back up their discoveries. Well-researched and movingly written in its personal case histories, this book has a message for all those involved in the care and education of autistic children."--BOOK JACKET.
