Music Therapy, Sensory Integration, and the Autistic Child

Synopsis

Raising NLD Superstars is essential reading for all those who come into contact with children with nonverbal learning disorders (NLD). Instead of insisting upon the one size fits all model of intervention the author focuses on the individual nature of children with NLD and offers practical, adaptable advice that will help them find their place both in the family and in wider social groups. The author shares her experiences of life as the parent of a child with NLD with humanity and humor. She looks not only at day to day practicalities such as making meal times easier for all the family and reaching compromises on inappropriate clothing choices but also at the long-term plan for independence. This book will help parents and caregivers encourage children with NLD to reach their emotional and cognitive potential while considering the views and experiences of other family members.
