Communicating Partners: 30 Years of Building Responsive Relationships with Late-Talking Children Including Autism, Asperger's Syndrome (Asd), Down Syndrome, and Typical Development : Development Guides for Professionals and Parents

By James D. Macdonald | Go to book overview

Introduction
Communicating Partners is the result of over 30 years of research and clinical work exploring two major questions:
1. What do children and adults need to do to become social and communicative in daily life?
2. How can their daily life partners interact with them to help them become more social and communicative?
Communicating Partners is a practical approach that anyone can use with a wide range of persons learning to communicate: typical children and ones who are “late-talking,” as well as children identified with autistic spectrum disorders, Asperger's syndrome, Down syndrome, attention disorders, motor delays, emotional disorders, and other conditions interfering with social and communicative development. The persistent goal has been to help parents and professionals develop socially effective relationships with children and adults who have been generally isolated from society.Communicating Partners is an optimistic approach to communication disorders. The key to this approach is building social relationships on a daily basis with life partners. It is optimistic in the following ways.
1. It is based on over 30 years of successes in guiding a wide range of persons to become more social and communicative.
2. It focuses on supporting each child's current strengths and building them into enduring social relationships, in contrast to many approaches that focus on the child's deficits. Communicating Partners views each child as developing along his own natural path
