Engaging Autism, now in paperback

From: Lindsey Triebel, Marketing Manager, Da Capo Lifelong Books

I’m writing to let you know about the paperback release of Engaging Autism: Using the Floortime Approach to Help Children Relate, Communicate, and Think by Stanley I. Greenspan, M.D. and Serena Wieder, PH.D.

Engaging Autism is an invaluable guide to the highly recommended Floortime approach for treating children with any type of autism spectrum disorder from the earliest signs in infancy through the school years and beyond. Now available in paperback, it includes new, exciting information on neuroscience research, plus guidance for parents navigating the controversies surrounding the treatment of autism.

Praise for Engaging Autism: “This is a valuable book: valuable to parents who worry about their child, valuable to professionals who are consulted, valuable to the teams (parents and professionals) who are looking for interventions for this frightening disorder. Floortime and the DIR programs are exciting innovations and dramatically effective.”

—T. Berry Brazelton, M.D., Clinical Professor of Pediatrics. Emeritus, Harvard Medical School

I have not read this book as of yet, but I have read The Child with Special Needs, by Greenspan and Wieder, many, many years ago. It was one of the first books that we'd read at the start of our journey with autism ... I used the well known Floortime approach which I thought was very helpful, effective and a good start at learning and interacting with my children.

Lisa Jo Rudy, Autism read the book and shared her thoughts here, including the pros and cons and a description of the book.

Have you read this book, what are your thoughts?
