Top Customer Reviews
Our child is mostly non verbal. We have started many therapy programs with him and seen him make some gains at first but then he gets stuck. According to HANDLE theory, this happens because most autism therapies start too high on the neurodevelopmental ladder. How can you learn to talk when all your mental energy is going into just figuring out where your body is in space, for example.
If the paragraph above describes your child, I would highly recommend this book.
You can't behavior modification away a broken leg.... or a broken nervous system. Behaviors are the child attempting to communicate something is off. Parents of children saddled with the diagnoses of ADD, ADHD, ODD and reactive attachment disorder will also find this work enlightening.
