If the first deviations from normal development occur in a child, be it language, motor skills or social interaction, parents and educators often wonder if this child may be autistic. Autism currently dominates not only research, but also the media. This, however, under a false understanding of autism as an incurable disease. However, the new social-psychological and developmentdynamic theory of autism makes it clear that autism is not a disease, but another form of being. And that autistic children can also develop normally, need social interaction for development, and are willing and able to do so. It only needs a higher sensitivity to allow autistic children to socialize. The book explains what autism is, how to recognize autistic children, and what should be considered as a precautionary measure to help autistic children develop normally.
