Description

The author sets out an approach based on Dr. Geoffrey Waldon's philosophy of the development of understanding, which centers on helping children, especially children with Autism learn-how-to-learn. This book does not offer a 'miracle cure' for autism, although the author aims to counteract the prevailing view that autism is a lifetime condition. The author demonstrates that with the appropriate intervention, children with autism - and other special needs - can gain a fuller understanding of the world and learn to take a constructive and contributing place in it. The author sets out an approach based on Dr. Geoffrey Waldon's philosophy of the development of understanding, which centers on helping children learn how to learn.

An introduction to Geoffrey Waldon's theory and working methods. Testimony from parents and teachers, covering autism and a range of learning difficulties. Teachers, therapists, doctors, parents, and special interest groups will find this book an essential and potentially transformational read.
