schema:description"In this book the author, an animal scientist who also has autism, gets down to the real issues of autism, the ones parents, teachers, and individuals on the spectrum face every day. She discusses how and why people with autism think differently, economical early intervention programs, how sensory sensitivities affect learning, the difference between bad behavior and bad behavior caused by a disability, teaching people with autism how to live in an unpredictable world, the pros and cons of alternate medicine and conventional medicine, and employment ideas for adults with autism. She offers helpful do's and don'ts, practical strategies, and try-it-now tips, all based on her "insider" perspective and a great deal of research. This revised and expanded edition contains revisions based on the most current autism research, as well as 14 additional articles. -- From back cover."@en
