520 " Over a decade ago, an autism diagnosis had confined Lori
Ashley Taylor's daughter Hannah to an inaccessible world.
Lori became a tireless researcher, worker, and advocate,
and her dedication showed results. There can be
progression and shifting on the spectrum, and Hannah has
done just that--she has emerged. Part narrative and part
practical guide, Dragonfly provides anecdotal and
practical guidance for parents of children with autism
spectrum disorder. The author discusses intervention
strategies, therapies such as Applied Behavioral Analysis
(ABA), and different medical tests. She explains Autism
terminology like hyperresponsivesness and stimming. A
classroom teacher herself, she recommends educational
accommodations and supports. Busy parents can find
practical tips on everything from making friends to
Sensory Processing Disorder in helpful sidebars in the
text. Taylor's personal experience is supplemented by
wisdom from a series of round table discussions featuring
other parents of children with autism--|cPublisher's
