The author sets out an approach based on Dr Geoffrey Waldon’s philosophy of the development of understanding, which centres on helping children learn-how-to-learn. The book includes:

  • The inspirational and well-documented story of the author’s son, diagnosed at two with autism and as ‘basically sub-normal’, now a successful professional with a wife and child.
  • An introduction to Geoffrey Waldon’s theory and working methods.
  • Testimony from parents and teachers, covering autism and a range of learning difficulties.

This book does not offer a ‘miracle cure’ for autism, although the author aims to counteract the prevailing view that autism is a lifetime condition. The author demonstrates that with the appropriate intervention, children with autism - and other special needs - can gain a fuller understanding of the world and learn to take a constructive and contributing place in it. Teachers, therapists, doctors, parents and special interest groups will find this book an important and potentially transformational read.
