Caring for an Autistic Child New Edition Publication date : September 19, 2013

What is the life of an autistic child like ? What kind of relationships will he have with others ? What does the learning experience mean to an autistic child ? How will he handle the lessons and setbacks of everyday life ? Questions such as these are tackled in this newly revised essay by Jacques Hochmann including the recent addition of a long, introductory chapter tracing the " Autistic Battle " where, with concrete examples, he shows us how to see beyond the rigid defenses of an autistic child and help him discover, or rediscover, the pleasures of mind and imagination.
Jacques Hochmann heads the Institute for the Treatment of the Emotionally and Mentally Disturbed in Villeurbanne, France.
