Content

Educating and caring for an autistic child is a severely difficult task, too often associated with frustration and disappointment. 
As a result, autism is widely assumed to be a condition which places the child's inner development beyond the reach of parents and carers.
The books challenges this assumption, quoting case studies where curative education based on a holistic approach has resulted in marked improvements in the autistic individual's behaviour and social integration.With an extended holistic programme, the autistic child comes to discover inner self-awareness and self-recognition, leading to first steps in relationships and social skills.
The authors describe in detail their own practical experiences with these therapies, as well as the findings of other experts in the field to back up their discoveries.
Well-researched and movingly written in its personal case histories, this book has an essential message for all those involved in the care and education of autistic children.

  •     Received on time and as described.
  •     I bought this book in spite of the other review saying it was "bizarre". Of course, a basic underdstanding of anthroposophy would help, but having read about 20 books and many research articles on the lastest developments in the findings about autism and its treatments, I found this book did not contradict any of it. In fact, I was quite surprised at how up to date this book was, considering how anthropopshy is 100 years old. It is one star short of 5, because I would have liked to have had less theory and more practical help.
