Product Description

Children and Autism presents seven heartwarming and compelling stories of children who have triumphed over the challenge of autism. These are not stories of easy or simple remedies but in the end in each instance the child is indistinguishable from their same-age peers. Parents can draw hope and inspiration from these stories while also realizing that dedication, hard work, and perseverance are key elements to success.

While these seven stories are the heart and soul of the book, Children and Autism is more than that. The book opens with a section on what autism and applied behavior analysis are. It closes with a comprehensive resource section that helps parent locate ABA resources, provides definitions, and offers advice on applying practices in the home.

Children and Autism is also a celebration of progress in treating autism using ABA. The book provides parents with a model that they can identify with, cheer on, and draw hope and inspiration from.

Endorsements

"Both parents and professionals who work with young children with autism should read this book. Many hours of intensive one-to-one behavioral therapy can bring about great improvements, especially when it is started at an early age. The worst thing that can be done with an autistic 2- or 3-year-old is nothing. When I was two, I had all the full blown symptoms of autism. By age two and a half I was in a therapy program for many hours a week. If my parents left me in the corner at a young age, I would not be a college professor today."
-Temple Grandin, author Thinking in Pictures

"In any discussion or material on autism the mere mention of the word "cure" elicits neck hairs to rise...Cipani provides substantial and well presented material that demonstrates how early intensive behavioral treatment (EIBT) has emerged as the most reliable, feasible and evidence based therapeutic modality in addressing the myriad social, intellectual and communicative maladaptions evident in children on the autism spectrum."
-Rick Rader, MD, Editor-in-Chief, Exceptional Parent Magazine

Children and Autism: Stories of Triumph and Hope - In this new book, psychologist Ennio Cipani includes the true stories of children who lost their autism diagnosis after intensive, early behavioral treatment. Chapters by different ABA providers explain how they addressed one child's challenges and, most importantly, how they changed their programs if a problem arose. A good resource if you have, or are considering, an ABA program for your child.
