BeschreibungFor parents and professionals, this volume details how to understand the thinking and behavior of children with neurological differences like nonverbal learning disabilities (NLD), Asperger's Syndrome, high-functioning autism, and pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS). The authors use case studies to describe a common deficit area in each chapter, from motor and sensory ability to emotion and social communication, and provide step-by-step instructions on how to apply their approach, which is based on understanding behavior based on the thought processes behind it, to everyday situations. There is no bibliography. Holzhauser- Peters is an advocate and speech-language pathologist. True works as an instructional aide and has a son who has NLD. Some of the case studies are from their experiences.
