Defying Autism: Keeping Your Sanity & Taking Control
With over 70 years of collective experience working with children diagnosed with ASD, the authors present a family focused model that places emphasis on the needs of both the child and of the family as a whole. Improving a child‰۪s skills and emotional functioning has a direct, positive impact on family functioning. By identifying family stressors and using them as a starting point for child-centered goals, parents can achieve the best outcome for both the child and the family.åÊ
With the two-fold goal of teaching children with autism new and adaptive behaviors, and simultaneously reducing family stress, this is an invaluable resource and an innovative teaching tool.
