Overcoming Autism

There have been huge advances in diagnosing autism and in the development of effective interventions that can change children's lives. In this informative book, Lynn Kern Koegel, a leading clinician, researcher, and cofounder of the renowned Autism Research Center at the University of California at Santa Barbara, combines her cutting-edge expertise with the everyday perspectives of Claire LaZebnik, a writer whose experience with a son with autism provides a rare view into the disorder. Together, they draw on the highly effective 'pivotal response' approach developed at the center to provide concrete ways of improving the symptoms of autism and the emotional struggles that surround it. They remind readers never to lose sight of the humor that lurks in the disability's quirkiness or the importance of enjoying your child. From the shock of diagnosis to the step-by-step work with verbal communication, social interaction, self-stimulation, meltdowns, fears, and more, the answers are here-in a book that is as warm and nurturing as it is authoritative. Authors: Lynn Kern Koegel PhD and Claire LaZebnik Pages: 336
