Autism therapy typically focuses on ridding individuals of “autistic” symptoms such as difficulties interacting socially, problems in communicating, sensory challenges, and repetitive behavior patterns. This book and its author offers a new and compelling paradigm: the most successful approaches to autism don’t aim at fixing a person by eliminating symptoms, but rather seeking to understand the individual’s experience and what underlies the behavior.
This book reassure parents and caregivers of kids with autism and any other disability that their kids are not broken but, indeed, "special". It provides an inspiration onto the vast possibilities of people with autism, showing that their lives represent opportunities, not disabilities; promise, not doom.
