By: Koegel, Lynn Kern
Material type: TextTextPublisher: Penguin Books, 2014Edition: Revised editionDescription: xxix, 398 pages ; 22 cmISBN: 9780143126546Subject(s): Childhood | Resources for parents | Books by parents | Diagnosis | Understanding autismSummary: "Since Overcoming Autism was first published nearly a decade ago, many theories about autism have fallen by the wayside. But the interventions described in this book have been shown to be the best approach to improving the development and quality of life of children with autism. Together, Lynn Kern Koegel, the nationally recognized head of the Autism Research Center at the University of California, and Claire LaZebnik, a professional writer and the mother of a child with autism, have updated their classic guide with today’s cutting-edge research. This revised edition has also been expanded to clarify the importance of community support to affected families and the effect of societal acceptance on a child’s life. Still the only book on autism coauthored by professional in the field and a parent with first-hand experience, Overcoming Autism is as warm and nurturing as it is authoritative."
