Autism affects more than 1 million children and adults in the
United States, and parents may be confused by the behavior of
autistic children. This book provides help-and hope-by explaining
the differences between various types of autism and delivering the
lowdown on behavioral, educational, medical, other interventions.
Featuring inspiring autism success stories as well as a list of
organizations where people who support those with autism can go for
additional help, it offers practical advice on how to educate
children as well as insights on helping people with autism use
their strengths to maximize their potential in life.
