Raising a Child with Autism
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a method which has been found to be effective in teaching children with autistic spectrum disorders and changing their behaviours. In Raising a Child with Autism, Shira Richman explains how parents can adapt the practical techniques used in ABA for use at home.
Richman provides tips and guidelines to increase play skills, improve communication and sibling interactions and increase independence.
The book also covers toilet-training, food selectivity, self-dressing and community outings, and includes an overview of the theory behind ABA as well as a list of resources for further reading. It offers parents a practical and effective way to help autistic children interact more successfully with family, friends and school.
