Offering a new perspective “Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism” by Dr. Barry Prizant suggests that instead of a checklist of symptoms or behaviors to correct, those very behaviors are the ways in which persons with autism interact and cope with our chaotic world. Building up these behaviors provides necessary supports that ultimately will help each person have a better quality of life. This book includes inspiring stories and practical advice that will help give parents, professionals and family members a hopeful perspective.
