Title: Reweaving the Autism Tapestry
Author: Blakemore-Brown, Lisa
Published: 2002
Summary:
This is the first book to look at the links between ADHD and autistic spectrum disorders in depth. The author uses the metaphor of the 'tapestry' to more clearly explain the interwoven nature of these disorders. She discusses different approaches, emphasizing the importance of early intervention and of finding the right approach for each child. This holistic viewpoint is extremely useful for parents because it demonstrates how a deeper understanding of the complexity of human development can lead to more appropriate early intervention and treatment plans for children with complex symptoms.
