Book DescriptionThis new autism book for parents provides a unique voice and presents information in a smart and accessible manner. Unlike most autism books, Dr. Thompson's "Straight Talk on Autism" is authored by a professional who has extensive experience in the field.Jargon-free explanations are given for stereotypical behaviors in children with autism and helpful suggestions are made to help curb them, or at least make life more livable. The author provides activities, practical interventions, and techniques that parents can do at home with their child. This book is unique among many autism books on the market, as Thompson does not advocate a particular approach, such as pivotal response treatment or applied behavior analysis.Illustrations, case studies, and numerous examples help make this book easy to read for any - one.
