Children with Autism by Marian D. Sigman
Book DescriptionThe aim of this book is to obtain a close look at the condition that afflicts over 350,000 Americans, autism. The text seeks to make sense of the many features of autism at every level of intellectual functioning across the life span. Research findings, methodological considerations, and historical accounts are explored, and the reader is conducted through the course of development from infancy to adulthood, outlining the differences between normal and autistic individuals at each stage. The authors suggest that deficits in social understanding emerge in the early infancy of autistic children, and they explore how these deficits organize the development of autistic individuals through the course of their lives. Also examined are the effects certain characteristics can have on an autistic person's adjustment over time.
