Autism: handle with care!: understanding and managing the behavior of children and adults with autism

GILLINGHAM, Gail
‘Autism: Handle with care!’ is a well written manual for understanding the autistic person in one's home or classroom. Gail Gillingham quotes autistic individuals as they explain what autism is. She addresses sensory sensitivities in a simple, concise manner helping the reader to understand the important perceptual differences autistic people have. She gives practical advice and helps to dispel many of the myths surrounding the autism diagnosis. Gail Gillingham asks the reader to begin to respectfully listen to what autistic persons have to say, for they are the ones experiencing the effects of autism and are, therefore, the experts.
