9781782500001: Autism: A Holistic Approach

Educating and caring for an autistic child is a severely difficult task and is too often associated with frustration and disappointment. As a result, the inner development of children with autism is at times considered beyond the reach of parents and caretakers. This book challenges such assumptions, exploring case studies in which therapy based on a holistic approach has led to significant improvements in behavior and social integration of autistic children. With an extended holistic program, autistic children discover inner self-awareness and self-recognition, leading to human relationships and social skills.

The authors go into detail about both their own practical experience and the findings of others in the field. This new, third edition covers recent developments in diagnostic methods and approaches to treatment, including new case studies and a new chapter on the sensory aspect of autism and Sensory Integration Therapy.

Well-researched and movingly written, this book has an essential, positive message for everyone involved in the care and education of autistic children.


“This is a very encouraging book for those dealing with autism, and though written for parents, caretakers and educators of the autistic child, there is much in it of importance for how we approach the needs of young children with even minor developmental difficulties.” ―Light Magazine

“'Well organized and clearly written. This book draws on the rich experience and insights of doctors gained over decades as well as individuals who experience autism themselves. We can be most grateful to have access to this first anthroposophic book in the English language devoted to autism.” ―Ingelore Maier, Journey for Anthroposophy

“Bob Woodward sets out clearly and in a lively, readable style his ideas, methods and results. This book could form the basis of some lively discussion at parents meeting.” ―Anthea Hailey, Camphill Pages

“We have much to learn from the teachings of Rudolf Steiner and Bob Woodward's application of them to working with children with autism. This book is an excellent introduction to the ideas and practice as they relate to autism.” ―Dr. Lorna Wing, Camphill Correspondence

“I would recommend this excellent well-researched book be on the bookshelf of every curative educator, therapist and doctor who is attempting to understand and care for those individuals who suffer from autism.” ―Jean Brown, Anthroposophical Medical Newsletter
