MAKING CONNECTIONS documents and examines in detail the group therapy program for autistic children and their families that the author has undertaken with a group of young therapists. Most of the material of the book comes from the actual dialogues among the therapists, as they share their insights about the children, therapy process, and about themselves as therapists. The book addresses the concerns of families who have autistic children and those of teachers and other professionals to whom the chidren are entrusted. Making Connections provides helpful insights as well to those interested in the Filipino family, in education, and in counselling and therapy.
