Raun truly knows what all the business about kids is.
Now: my son is not autistic; however, there was a suspicion posed by one of the doctors (after expressing ours concerns).
Therefore, when I heard that my child may be autistic I decided to learn about is as much as I could.
This book is amazing, it is a well of knowledge - now I understand why I struggle to get my child attention and focus, why he trows tantrums. I know what mistakes I am making and what I need to change in my expectations and behavior.
This book opened my eyes very wide - it made me realize that although I have two brilliant children, there is still a lot I need to learn to be a good parent to them.
Read this book - it will change your life. It will change your whole understanding of parenthood and raising your children
Firstly is the subject of eye contact - where it is argued that without eye contact an autistic person will never truely bond with another person, and that getting eye contact is the first step in working with an autistic child. This is simply not true, and there are reports from autistic people that eye contact is painful and invasive. It is certainly not required to successfully bond.
Second is the idea that every autistic child can and will talk, and in following this belief the book advocates that you should remove any augmented means of communication such as PECS, sign language or AAC devices as it will make the child use verbal language. Not only is this premise incorrect (some autistic people will remain non-verbal their entire lives), but it also not backed up by research - a very short amount of time spent researching "will PECS/sign language inhibit/prevent speech" will reveal that studies suggest the exact opposite, that they increase speech.
This leads to my main problem with the book; that it criticises other strategies used in the field of Autism without seeming to fully understand them.Read more ›
