Autism Explained (eBook)
de Lise St-Charles e Brigitte Harrisson
Sobre o livro
A new understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
An autistic brain is different from a neurotypical brain: it is wired differently and does not treat information the same way. In this book, the co-founders of the SACCADE centre for expertise in autism care present a new way of understanding Autism Spectrum Disorder.
In the form of questions and answers, the authors explain over fifty notions related to the development of autism. They also give advice based on a new understanding of ASD, which is increasingly echoed by medical professionals.
Autism Explained features anecdotes from the life of Brigitte Harrisson, herself autistic, and that of writer Kim Thúy, mother of an autistic son.
