Description - Communicating Partners by James D. MacDonald
Children with autism and their life partners - their parents, families, peers and educators - who are not on the autism spectrum can feel as though they live in separate and even incompatible worlds. "Communicating Partners", the result of over 30 years of clinical practice, research and professional teaching, offers an innovative approach to working with children with ASDs that focuses on developing these relationships through mutual understanding. With extended case studies illustrating each stage of development and practical strategies for parents, teachers and professionals that help them to understand their child's world, "Communicating Partners" should be a useful resource for those interacting and working with children with autism.
