If you google Applied Behavioral Analysis you will see glowing reports of its efficacy for more than 30 pages. I use this language as it is the language employed by the author. The whole acceptance model obviously is not employed when thinking in these terms, how could it be? And perhaps this is the single greatest problem when discussing ABA. Ethics is not a word one associates with chemotherapy.

I've read some of the other reviews of this book and overall agree with some of the issues raised hours of very strict ABA to make an autistic child 'normal' at all costs, dismissing special interests as 'perseverations', etc. First published in , and at that point the author is looking back in time by several years, so the actual events probably took place in the mid to late eighties.
At that point in time there weren't the online support groups, the various autism organizations, the plethora of well-known therapies from Floortime to Affective Based Language to RDI, or in general much awareness of what autism was at all.
Parents were left to their own devices to do the best they could and, even if I disagree on some points, who out there could start from square one like that and still manage to come up with every answer, something we still haven't managed today? I will say that, having worked with dozens of autistic children, I find the recovery aspect of the story highly unusual. I've seen children that make tremendous progress in functioning, however, I've never witnessed a child going from totally autistic to totally not-autistic in the span of about two or three years.
I'm not saying the diagnosis wasn't correct although there do seem to be a subset of children who do some really classically autistic things as toddlers and yet do not end up being autistic, just that I don't think this is typical, even with the best therapy programs.
Overall, I applaud this book as a touching story of a family's strength and as a breakthrough in people's thinking on autism treatment. Stories like this one helped more people to see that there are ways to work with and teach autistic children.
We may have refined our approach since then, but this realization was an important moment in treatment history. Factually outdated. Such a beautifully-written and informative book. The author had no way of knowing this in the 80s, of course. Wonderful book for families with an autistic child. I have a child with Down syndrome and wanted to learn more about ABA.
This book was recommended by a field professional. As mothers of children with special needs we can all relate to the experience of navigating the field to find proper treatment and therapy in our desire to do the best for our munchkins regardless of the diagnosis. Our experiences often include opening our homes to the help of strangers and trusting that they know what they're doing. This book sheds light on that very real experience and was a great introduction for me to ABA.
One person found this helpful. Nor would we care, as she emerged into the light of human loving, and lifted her blue-green eyes into ours. This book presents arguments about the scientific approach of treating autism while singing about the triumph of the human soul. Excellent resource for creating a home ABA therapy program for a child with autism.
I personally have a 7-year old son with severe autism and this book has been very well loved in our home. A great read. I began my journey into the world of autism when my 3-year-old son was diagnosed with PDD.
At the time, you could have fit my knowledge of autism onto the head of a pin. My son's diagnosis left me utterly devastated.
Throughout the book the author the autistic child's mother is portrayed as extremely emotional, conflicted, and not knowing the right thing to do. The husband is strong and supportive, and steps in to be "rational" and keep the family firmly on the right path.
I mentioned to my husband that it reminds me of those old cautionary tales of drug use. The "anonymous" diaries by teens who innocently started to experiment with drugs, then flew out of control, then found god and neatly sewed up their recovery.
It's like a "Go Ask Alice" for autism. In the book, the autistic children have access to ABA and speech therapy every single day. They have a mother who stays home with them and a father who is a wealthy investment banker with a large and supportive family.
There are many parents of autistic children Sam and I included who do not have access to these things. In the book there is no mention of financial hardship, no mention of insurance companies or the headache and fight even now more than ten years after the book was published to get ABA recognized as a vital part of recovering autistic children.
In many ways it's a "Horatio Alger" fairytale full of platitudes, and it's not pertinent to me at all. There are great things about the book. At times it's nice to read that someone out there has felt the same anguish and guilt at lashing out. Just like any other illness- no one can truly understand what you are going through like someone else who experiences the same daily struggle. There is a great deal of clinical detail with regard to behavior modification and the early days of ABA.
