As many as 1.5 million children and adults in the U.S. have autism. The lifetime cost of caring for a child with autism ranges from $3.5 to $5 million. Our children - our future - are at stake. The world needs to listen to what Temple Grandin has to say.
In this innovative audiobook, Dr. Temple Grandin gets down to the REAL issues of autism, the ones parents, teachers, and individuals on the spectrum face every day. Temple offers helpful do's and don'ts, practical strategies, and try-it-now tips, all based on her "insider" perspective and a great deal of research. These are just some of the specific topics Temple delves into:
