Built around case studies of children, their parents, and young adults with autism, this program distinguishes between high- and low-functioning autism; illustrates structural and functional differences between autistic and non-autistic brains; considers genetics, neurological diseases, and immune system anomalies as possible contributory factors; and discusses associated conditions, such as mental retardation, epilepsy, and echolalia. Applied behavior analysis, the TEACCH system, multisensory stimulation, and dietary interventions are also touched upon

Épopée en Amérique une histoire populaire du Québec ( Visual )
3 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Résumé: Cette série compte aider les Québécois à raviver leur mémoire en adoptant une démarche vulgarisatrice. L'auteur, Jacques Lacoursière, s'attarde tout aussi bien à la vie des peuples et des gens ordinaires qu'à celle des personnages importants. Outre le point de vue de Lacoursière, les émissions donnent aussi la parole à plusieurs historiens invités. La série s'ouvre sur les expéditions navales du 16e siècle pour se terminer avec la Révolution tranquille. Les images font largement appel à du matériel d'archives (gravures, dessins, peintures, films); on a même inséré des scènes fictives pour illustrer certains éléments. [SDM]
