Description

The Autism Story brings a fresh approach to the extensive literature on autism. The author draws upon her own long experience as a child psychologist, working with a large population of autistic children, to take readers through the story of a parent and teacher dealing with an autistic child. Using research findings from the field of developmental psychology, the author informs readers about this diagnosis which has evolved from "extremely rare" to the epidemic we know today.
