"Oh, the joy when he finally got it!"
Laura Hendrickson knows the challenges and victories of raising a child on the autism spectrum.
She believes your child has been uniquely made by God. And rather than wishing your child could be like everyone else, you can instead begin to hope that he'll grow up to be the adult God designed him to be, differences and all.
Dr. Hendrickson discusses social skills, rituals, friends, options for education and career, managing emotions, discipline, and more. You'll learn the importance of lavish praise and quiet correction, gentle pressure to learn, firm limits and consistency, and discipleship.
And wherever your child is on the autism spectrum, whether high or low functioning, verbal or nonverbal, you'll find helpful and hopeful information so you too can know the joy of your child "getting it" in his or her own unique way.
Dr. Hendrickson demonstrates not only an ability to present scientific and academic methods for therapy for autistic kids but is also able to mold that into a Christian worldview.Published 3 months ago by ericasue
