Asperger Syndrome? by Daniel Gottlieb, Ph.D., Robert Naseef,
Ph.D. and Stephen Shore, Ed.D.
Insightful and at times very moving, the discussion covers more than symptoms, trying to get at what autism means in human terms. Major topics: empathy/compassion, sensory issues, social skills, anxiety, "differentness," adult issues, including employment, siblings, family grief and anguish, as well as cultural implications of ASD.
In addition to individual viewing, the DVD is ideal for discussion in parent groups, teacher training, professional development, and general public awareness.
