Autism is usually portrayed as a checklist of deficits, including difficulties interacting socially, problems in communicating, sensory challenges, and repetitive behavior patterns. This perspective leads to therapies focused on ridding individuals of “autistic” symptoms.
Dr. Barry M. Prizant, an internationally renowned autism expert, offers a new and compelling paradigm: the most successful approaches to autism don’t aim at fixing a person by eliminating symptoms, but rather seeking to understand the individual’s experience and what underlies the behavior.
Join Dr. Barry Prizant and me on Tuesday, October 13, 10-11 A.M. CT US, as we discuss his groundbreaking book on autism, Uniquely Human. Dr. Prizant offers inspiring stories, and practical advice drawn from his four-decade career working in universities, schools, hospitals, and in private practice.
