Does Johnny Have Autism? – William Bentrim

Much has been made about the dramatic increase in autism. Something to note is that autism as a term has been replaced by the expression autistic spectrum. Various disorders have been placed on a spectrum of behavior which has differing levels of impact. All too often children have been labeled and then the self-fulfilling prophecy aspect occurs when realistic perceptions are clouded by a misplaced label. This book’s goal is to decry the label of autism and to provide a simplistic description of the autistic spectrum suitable for elementary age children.
