Autism - The Eighth Colour of the Rainbow: Learn to Speak Autistic (Paperback)

£22.99
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

Through her questioning of traditional approaches regarding autism, and with determination and patience, Florica Stone has been able to develop a satisfying and supportive two-way channel of communication with her once non-verbal and solitary autistic son. In Autism - The Eighth Colour of the Rainbow Florica shows how shared meanings can be learnt and expressed between autistic and non-autistic individuals, though they experience radically different perceptions of reality. Through interacting with and listening to her autistic friends and son, she began to understand the autistic learning style and to decipher the various behavioural needs that arise from their particular sensory processing.



In this inspiring, much-needed guide she presents ways of creating autistic-friendly environments, modifying traditional responses to autistic behaviour and using literal learning, and provides many useful examples and exercises. This book will help parents, teachers and professionals to learn how to interact meaningfully with autistic children, continuously enhance communication and bring about long-lasting changes.

Florica Stone is happily married, enjoys parenting three children, hosts workshops and assists parents in their quest for meaningful 24-hour interaction and communication with their autistic child. Between 1994 and 2000 she was a single parent and devoted her life to understanding autism. Florica transformed her home into an open-house autistic Sanctuary. She sheltered and befriended adults with autism who taught her about different thinking and learning styles, and reached out to non-verbal children, bringing language and fun into their lives.
