 Autism and Acupuncture: (Autism and Acupuncture:)

For the first time, a clear description of the unique perspective of Chinese medicine on Autism, how it develops, and how (and when) it can be helped. The ideas are presented in a way that parents can easily understand, while at the same time providing enough detail for the experienced practitioner. This book is for parent and practitioner, and is written to help autistic children and their parents. It explains the broad vision of Chinese Medicine, and how it incorporates all aspects of life - Joy, Sadness, Energy and Exhaustion. Enthusiasm and Boredom.

THE PARENT will find a clear explanation of the many factors which contribute to autism, and will find that it is not so mysterious after all. There is a whole chapter devoted to self-help.
THE PRACTITIONER will find enough detail to enable effective support and treatment, together with an understanding of likely outcomes.
