Making Autism a Gift: Inspiring Children to Believe in Themselves and Lead Happy, Fulfilling Lives
Despite new research and increased public awareness, autism is still looked at in a negative light.
Most books on the subject perpetuate this notion by saying that autism is bad or needs to be overcome, rather than highlighting the positive-for instance, many people with autism graduate from college, attain exciting careers, and lead happy, fulfilling lives.
Making Autism a Gift emphasizes these positive realities and tears down the wall of isolation associated with this disorder.
With information from hundreds of up-to-date sources, this practical book looks at the effects of autism on the individual and provides strategies parents can use to help their autistic children at home and beyond.
