Description

A new understanding of autism spectrum disorder.

The experience of autistic people, real-life stories from parents, and suggested therapeutic approaches are brought together in New Ways of Understanding Autism to provide a realistic sense of autism and to build a sense of hope. Co-authors Brigitte Harrisson and Lise St-Charles, along with Governor General–award winning novelist Kim Thúy, present a new understanding of autism spectrum disorder — one that focuses on putting the needs of the autistic person where they should be: at the centre.
