Families, world experts, and persons on the autism spectrum share their experiences in this collection of stories. With a focus on the positive aspects of autism and the importance of community involvement and early intervention, Autism : The Gift That Need to Be Opened is a resource whose aim is to improve the lives o parents, educators, and persons who have autism spectrum disorder ( ASD).
There are new studies that show that every child who undergoes intensive behavioural intervention therapy improves in some way. In fact, I have heard rare stories of some children having full or near-full recoveries. The most important factor leading to positive outcomes, however, is to start such interventions early and, in the best-care scenario, even before the first signs of autism appear.
These stories are inspirational and informative, while also serving as a reminder- indeed, as a rallying cry- that individuals who have autism can, with the proper care and attention, lead full and productive lives and change the way we see the world.
