Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0806504080, Paperback)

Although the underlying causes of early childhood autism are still unknown, recent years have seen much progress made in developing ways of helping autistic children to learn and practice social skills.

Now this invaluable guide for parents, educators and physicians shows how an autistic child views his fantasy world and explains his difficulties in perceiving and understanding events around him. Dr. Wing reviews the behavioral and emotional problems which must be expected, and how these may be handled.

Dr. Wing also discusses the particular stresses on the autistic child's family, services that can help, the role of parents' organizations, and the outlook for the future.

The basic aim of this book is the careful progressive development of the autistic child toward integration in society through individual growth.
