About this product
- DescriptionThis is the winner of 'best n fiction' in the Goodreads choice awards 2013. It's estimated that one in almost a hundred people are diagsed as being on the autistic spectrum but there is far more hope for them today than ever before thanks to groundbreaking new research. In this fascinating and highly readable book, Temple Grandin offers her own experience as an autistic person alongside remarkable new discoveries about the autistic brain, as well as genetic research. She also highlights long-igred sensory problems as well as the need to treat autism symptom by symptom, rather than with an umbrella diagsis. Most exciting of all, she argues that raising and educating children on the autistic spectrum needs to be less about focusing on their weaknesses, and more about fostering their unique contributions.
