9780156653206: Nadia: A Case of Extraordinary Drawing Ability in an Autistic Child (A Harvest/Hbj Book)

No one like Nadia has ever been known before. An autistic child who could scarcely communicate or understand. Nadia has mystified psychologists and art theorists by the astonishing drawing ability she began to exhibit at age three and a half. With only a few photographs and children's book as her inspiration, she drew animals - especially horses - in vigorous, highly sophisticated line, with an accomplished sense of perspective, proportion, and movement. Lorna Selfe, an educational psychologist, met Nadia at the Child Development Research unit of the University of Nottingham. Recognizing Nadia as truly exceptional, Selfe prepared a single-case study, which is reprinted here along with more than one hundred of Nadia's drawings, made between ages three and a half and seven. This dramatic study will force us to reassess many established assumptions - about the measurement of intellect, the relationship between perception and learning, and the role of language in formulating concepts. It will be of particular interest to psychologists, artists, teachers, parents of autistic children, as well as to all those fascinated by the uncharted areas of human intelligence.
