Tekst achterflap

In 'Autism: Let’s not forget the parents!', parents of children with autism recount their experiences. In their stories, they are open and honest regarding how the diagnosis of “autism” affects them and their (sometimes difficult) search to find the best help for their child. Also discussed is how Raeger’s care impacts their child’s development. In addition, parents share what they see moving forward for their child with autism and the culmination of care after Raeger. The stories of experience in this book help to show other parents of children with autism that they are not alone in their search as they struggle to find placement and the perfect fit for their child regarding schooling, treatment, and care. The insight provided through the personal stories give hope and encouragement, with a look at an international community of parents facing the same challenges. People who have little or no exposure to autism will gain insight into what it is like to live with children with autism, increasing understanding about this developmental disorder. 'Autism: Let’s not forget the parents!' is a serious contribution to the conversation about (dealing with) autism, with an engaging tone and unique insight.

Biografie

In 2012 startte Peggy-Ann Clarck haar carrière bij Raeger als directeur/bestuurder. Raeger is een behandel- en begeleidingscentrum in Amsterdam voor kinderen van 18 maanden tot18 jaar binnen het spectrum autisme. Dit centrum begon als een particulier initiatief van twee ouders met een kind met autisme. De doelstelling van Raeger is om de kinderen door te laten stromen in een vorm van onderwijs. Een gestructureerde aanpak gericht op een vertaling van een zorgplan naar dagactiviteiten moet dit mogelijk maken. Wij werken ABA. Daarnaast beschikken wij binnenkort over een ingerichte time-out- en snoezelkamer. Deze instrumenten zijn effectief waar het gaat om prikkelverwerking. Onder leiding van Peggy-Ann is Raeger van vier cliënten in 2011 naar 187 in 2021 gegaan en van één locatie naar acht locaties en van acht medewerkers naar 150.
