The Fabric of Autism

The Fabric of Autism

Infused with rare insights into the impetus behind autistic behaviors, The Fabric of Autism weaves the various threads of autism into a "makes-sense" theory, hard won through personal experience and decades of study. From neuroscientific research, explanations of developmental processes and clinical outcomes emerge the probable causes of autism.

Both a significant clinical work and a moving memoir that illuminates the humanity hidden beneath the bewildering facade of autism. Theholistic approach presented here gives hope to parents, relatives and professionals working with those affected by autism.
