About the Author

Shirley Cohen is Professor of Special Education at Hunter College of the City University of New York.


"This book contains a balanced discussion of the many different types of educational programs. It will help parents and professionals make wise choices. It needs to be in every library." - Temple Grandin, author of Thinking in Pictures and Other Reports from My Life with Autism "Every developmental pediatrician, pediatric neurologist, and child psychiatrist in the country should be handing out copies of Targeting Autism along with the diagnosis. It is a marvel. In just 186 warm and engaging pages Cohen asks and answers the questions all of us face when we make potentially life-altering decisions concerning our chil-dren's treatment and education.... This book is a gift." - Catherine Johnson, Narrative: Newsletter of the National Alliance for Autism Research"
