Challenging the Myths of Autism

Authors:

Jonathan Alderson

Description:

How many times have you heard that people with autism lack creativity, reject affection or suffer from mental retardation? As the number of children diagnosed with autism surges, researchers and educators are racing to define this spectrum disorder. But in trying to characterize this widely varying group, people often perpetuate a host of limiting and potentially damaging misconceptions. Provocative and meticulously researched, Challenging the Myths of Autism looks at the most prevalent fallacies, explains how they developed, examines why dispelling them matters and, most importantly, sets out a new understanding that will change the way parents and professionals view autism.
