Product description


Bringing to bear decades of experience and a fresh open-mindedness rarely found among autism experts, Jonathan Alderson tackles the conventional wisdom that has systematically undervalued our children, terrified parents, and blocked innovation in treatment. If you really want to understand an autistic child, dump your old textbooks and read this book instead. --Jill Escher, "Autism Tomorrows"
