Autism is a condition which renders the sufferer incapable of understanding meaning 'beyond the information given'. The autistic person has a purely literal relationship with reality and has difficulty in developing imagination. Theo Peeters regards autistic people as 'hyperrealist' in a world of 'surrealism' that we call 'normal'. Paradoxically, it is lack of imagination that makes dealing with an absence of imagination so difficult. This book not only provides a theoretical understanding of the condition to help carers to adapt to the autistic person's way of thinking, but also offers practical intervention strategies for education and treatment.
