Magnificent minds : the new whole-child approach to autism / Suzanne Goh, MD.

Goh, Suzanne, (author.).

Summary:
"An estimated one in thirty-six children in the United States is diagnosed with autism. New research has shed light on the many factors that determine a child's trajectory-but many parents are still navigating this complex terrain without a road map. Pediatric neurologist Dr. Suzanne Goh has spent decades working with autistic children, and in this practical and research-based guide she shares her renowned and revolutionary model of care: an innovative, whole-child approach that combines optimal medical treatment with the most effective strategies for advancing cognition, communication, and behavior. Demystifying a wide range of diagnostics and therapies and offering new insights into the neurological, biochemical, behavioral, and social factors that play a role in successful outcomes, the book is an essential resource for understanding all of autism-a strengths-based approach that helps parents design a comprehensive treatment plan. It is also a celebration of what each autistic person brings to the world-and how parents can best nurture the remarkable uniqueness of their child while setting them up for the future they envision"-- Provided by publisher.
