Autism: A Holistic View - Book By Regina Varin-Mignano, LCSW-R

Autism: A Holistic View


Much of the recent research in autism comes from a quantitative, researcher’s viewpoint. However, this book’s mission is to look at the “whole picture” in order to capture the meaning of Autism and its effects on the family. The book is written primarily for social work professionals in the field of autism and developmental disabilities, Students, individuals affected with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families alike, and anyone who has a special interest in the Autism field. In order to capture the impact of autism, the author utilizes her own personal and professional experience in identifying the different aspects that make up the culture of autism: its history, the biological and environmental aspects; past and present governmental and educational policies; the social impact of autism and its impact on the family unit.
