Summary

Why would a child refuse to talk about anything but wasp wings - or the colour of subway train doors? What does it mean when a nine-year-old asks questions about death hundreds of times a day? And how can parents build a close relationship with a little girl who hates to be touched? In this compassionate book, leading autism authority Dr. Peter Szatmari shows that children with autism spectrum disorders act the way they do because they think in vastly different ways than other people. Dr. Szatmari shares the compelling stories of children he has treated who hear everyday conversation like a foreign language or experience hugs like the clamp of a vise. Understanding this unusual inner world - and appreciating the unique strengths that thinking differently can bestow - will help parents relate to their children more meaningfully, and make the outer world a less scary place.
