About the Author
Robert J. Bernstein has been treating children on the autism spectrum for more than 30 years. He shepherded his son, who is on the spectrum, through college and graduate school and on to a successful career in computer electronics. He consults for numerous organizations, including the National Council on Alcoholism and Other Drug Dependencies, and was publicly acclaimed for pioneering table tennis as a means to facilitate social interaction among young people with autism. His work with a previously nonverbal child whom he helped learn to speak was documented in the New York Times. He has appeared on Dateline NBC; national radio; hosted "Educating Your Child," a call-in radio show; and conducted dozens of seminars and presentations, including "First Responders and Individuals with Autism: Averting Crises and Preventing Disastrous Consequences," the first conference of its kind in Westchester. He received his graduate training at Teachers College Columbia University and lives in Westchester County, New York.
