A Practical Guide to Autism: What Every Parent, Family Member, and Teacher Needs to Know

Autism is in the public spotlight now more than ever as new research and information appears almost daily. Although in many ways this is a positive development it also presents challenges to families and practitioners who want to keep up with the latest developments and are left to sift through new information by themselves to see what is credible and relevant for them.Each of us needs a personal research assistant who can determine which information we need to pay attention to and let us know how it might affect our daily work and the children we are living with or serve. Since we each don't have our own research assistants on staff, I am delighted to recommend this wonderful book by Fred Volkmar and Lisa Wiesner. Both of these talented professional leaders have combined their scientific skills and understanding of the field with great practical experience and ideas about how research can be translated into clinical practice.

Inclusive Education for Children with Special Needs

Inclusive education is a worldwide movement aiming to create one education system that values all children--to devise a classroom that welcomes all children irrespective of disability, community background, sexuality, ethnic background etc. The current conceptualization of Children with Special Needs has replaced the negative labels of the past which called disabled children as lame, crippled, less fortunate or mentally retarded. The modern concept consider such children as unique whose uniqueness may be noticed in one or the other dimensions--vision, hearing, communication, adaptive behaviour, etc. Researches are being conducted across the world so that inclusive education can be made more adequate and thereby prove more useful. The present book is a complete treatise on inclusive education with particular emphasis on children with special needs.
