Autism by Maureen Aarons
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


An excellent source of practical ideas that form the basis for programmes of intervention for children with autism. The content is primarily aimed at those working with children who have normal, or near normal, cognitive abilities, rather than those who work with children whose autism accompanies severe learning disabilities. This book offers children with autism, an accessible route to a social skills programme and practitioners with the opportunity to help students enhance their quality of life. This approach to remediation appreciates that a disorder affecting social functioning should be remediated by focusing on this area. The authors are speech language therapists who work both in the community and in educational settings.
