Format: softcover
Pages: 212

Steve Gutstein, psychologist and autism specialist, sought to discover why children with autism lack the social skills that come so easily to the rest of us. The result of his efforts is an innovative programme - Relationship Development Intervention - that take social skills teaching to the next level. You’ll learn about the social development pathway of the nondisabled child and the life-changing detour taken by children on the autism spectrum. However, instead of leaving you there, Autism/Aspergers: Solving the Relationship Puzzle describes ways to steer children with autism onto a bright new path of self discovery and social awareness, one that will ultimately bring them home to meaningful friendships, shared emotions and heartfelt connection with the people in their lives.

“Teachers are fueled by the idea that maybe, sometimes, we make a difference. The concepts and activities offered in this book show me how I can help a child find true joy in relationships … a very exciting prospect, indeed!”
- Debra Hall Boss, Educator

“Steve Gutstein's Relational Development Intervention programme is designed to encourage genuine reciprocal relationships … Because his approach is quite different from conventional social skills programmes, we benefit from not only new insight, but practical strategies for parents and professionals as well …This book will undoubtedly help to solve the relationship puzzle.”
- Tony Attwood, Ph.D., Internationally recognised expert on Asperger Syndrome

“Steve Gutstein has distilled his clinical experience with individuals with autism, Asperger’s and PDD into a comprehensive and comprehensible handbook on social and emotional development. It’s value for therapists, parents and people with autism is immeasurable …”
- Leonard A. Zwelling, Director of Research, University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Clinic, Father of a son with AS
