Download and read online A Practical Guide to Autism in PDF and EPUB Autism is in the public spotlight now more than ever as new research and information appears almost daily. Although in many ways this is a positive development it also presents challenges to families and practitioners who want to keep up with the latest developments and are left to sift through new information by themselves to see what is credible and relevant for them.Each of us needs a personal research assistant who can determine which information we need to pay attention to and let us know how it might affect our daily work and the children we are living with or serve. Since we each don’t have our own research assistants on staff, I am delighted to recommend this wonderful book by Fred Volkmar and Lisa Wiesner. Both of these talented professional leaders have combined their scientific skills and understanding of the field with great practical experience and ideas about how research can be translated into clinical practice. The result is a book that provides the best and most comprehensive information about recent scientific developments and a splendid practical guide for how they are being implemented and what we are learning in the process. The issues are presented in all of their complexity but translated into language that is clear, direct, and easy to follow. The format also lends itself to understanding the complex issues and their implications through excellent charts, question and answer sections, and chapters that vary from describing diagnostic issues to stating very specifically how to expand and evaluate the services one is receiving. The comprehensive references and lists of additional resources also add greatly to the overall package. As a professional dedicated to understanding scientific advances and helping families and teachers to utilize them most effectively, I am very pleased to have an ally like this book available. I am very grateful to the authors for providing a very credible, practical, and relevant addition to our field to help the many advocates and family practitioners to better understand the exciting new developments and how they can be implemented in our day to day work. Those taking the time to read through this superb volume will find it time well spent that pays back dividends in many different ways. —FOREWORD by Gary B. Mesibov, Ph.D., Professor and Director of TEACCH, Treatment and Education of Autistic and Related Communication Handicapped Children University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Download and read online How Your Child Heals in PDF and EPUB Good communication between parents and doctors is the cornerstone of getting good care for the child. Doctors are increasingly pressed for time and appointment visits are shorter than ever. Unfortunately, when time is short, what often suffers is explaining to parents what to expect and why. There is another reason explaining often takes a back seat in parent-physician encounters—they are increasingly encounters between strangers. These days many children rarely see the same doctor twice, and more doctor visits happen in emergency departments and walk-in clinics, places where the doctors and families are strangers to each other. In these conditions parents need to learn how to make the most of their brief time with the doctor. This book will help them do that. This book is not a description of a laundry list of pediatric diseases. There are already plenty of those on bookstore shelves. Rather, it uses specific, familiar examples—things like ear infections, asthma attacks, broken bones, and appendicitis—to explain what is happening inside a child's body as it heals. But the book goes beyond that. It does not simply explain; it demonstrates, using vivid narrative techniques so readers can better visualize the processes being described.
