Requesting Title: Autism Is Not A Life Sentence - How One Family Took On Autism and WON
Author: Summers, Lynley
Published: 2006
Summary:
Summers takes a unique, and, to some, controversial, approach to teaching and parenting her daughter with autism by applying Chaos Theory in combination with more traditional behavior management strategies. The results have been extraordinary. Jessica, initially pronounced as limited to a self-contained classroom wearing a helmet to prevent self-abusive behaviors, is now an accomplished student in high school, composing music, writing stories, and speaking at conferences about life with autism.
