Autism — Exploring the Explosion (2020)
Discoveries, assumptions, misunderstandings, and developmental coordination disorder (DCD)
During her 20+ year career as a multidisciplinary scientist-practitioner, Dr. Kamps, a respected developmental psychologist who works primarily with school-aged populations, began to question certain professional practices — specifically those pertaining to autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
In her latest book, AUTISM — Exploring the Explosion, Dr. Kamps investigates the steadily rising prevalence rates of autism and its relationship to a formal mental health condition called developmental coordination disorder (DCD). Using a robust scientific method, Dr. Kamps' in depth research has revealed unsettling findings. Indeed, she offers a fully comprehensive, bold, and new interpretation of ASD.
Written as an intimate case study narrative, this firsthand account of a young family's experience is both engaging and accessible to a wide readership — scholars included. Dr. Kamps' profound conclusions challenge the status quo, and will be sure to surprise.
