TURN AUTISM AROUND by Mary Lynch Barbera

by: Mary Lynch Barbera

Diagnosed cases of autism have skyrocketed in recent years without much understanding of why or how to treat the condition. This book is an essential read for any parent who has concerns about the development of their young child, whether it’s in communication, speech or attention issues. Dr Barbera strongly argues that you shouldn’t wait for health professionals to step in but start addressing the issue yourself. If you do, you could help your child ward off the worst of autism and lead a much less challenging life. She lists the red flag behavioural traits to look out for and provides exercises to do with your child, citing many examples of how these exercises have helped a host of children also showing autistic tendencies. She became involved with autism treatment having been in denial about her own son’s condition, so speaks with a lot of passion and authority.
