Parents and Teachers Guide to the Care of Autistic Children.
Burkowsky, Mitchell R., Ed.
Geared to parents and teachers, the guide deals with autistic children. Characteristics of the typical autistic child are discussed along with common problems faced by their parents. The confusing problems of diagnosis (labeling) are explored. A report of a summer prekindergarten group training program (for 5- to 8-year old children), outlining the thinking processes employed in setting up, is presented. Emphasis from the program is on changes made by the children, the therapists, and the parents. Two case observations of the autistic child in his daily routine in a regular kindergarten and in a day-care center are also presented. (CD)
