Once you have seen an autistic child that is what you have seen - "one, unique individual." Jack E. George is a veteran Special Education teacher who has taught some of the most difficult autistic children to go through the California school systems. "The Autism Handbook" is a snapshot of some of the children he has worked with and is gently layered with easy to understand information on diagnosis, dealing with the American school systems and parental advice. This is a "must" read book for families, friends, college students, teachers, social workers or anyone struggling to understand this complicated disability. About the Author Jack E. George earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology from the University of California, Stanislaus. After graduating he began his career in education. He quickly realized how many students fell behind in the system yet were promoted year after year. He opened the first tutoring center in Stanislaus County to try and meet the needs of some of these students. After the success of the center he opened Creekside Private School for Grades K-9. This is where he began mainstreaming - placing students with various educational disabilities into a regular classroom. He went on to earn his Master of Arts Degree in Special Education from Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont, California. His training also includes the specialized TEACCH program, the PECS system, ABA and others. He is currently living in Baja California, Mexico where he has started a non-profit organization to assist people with disabilities. He is also writing his next book, "The Autistic Adult Handbook."
