This practical guide to the treatment of children with autism and Asperger syndrome commences with a comprehensive review of research into the nature, causes and treatment of these complex conditions. A wide range of therapies are explored and evaluated and advice is given to parents about the issues to consider when seeking treatment for their children. Practical ways of approaching a variety of problems relating to autism and Asperger syndrome are discussed, notably those associated with;
* language impairments
* social deficits
* ritualistic and stereotyped behaviours
Outcomes of the various treatments are outlined and a number of informative case studies are incorporated. The book concludes by tackling the crucial need for appropriate educational provision and early help for families. Children with Autism and Asperger Syndrome is an essential guide for practitioners, teachers and carers seeking a comprehensive, unbiased appraisal of these conditions and the numerous therapies available.
"Getting the balance right between being clear about the complex state of scientific understanding of a disorder and being able to translate what we do know into readable and scientifically sound advice for practitioners and parents is a difficult challenge. Paricia Howlin's book meets the challenge head-on and succeeds admirably..." (Clinical Child Psychology and Psychiatry, Vol 5. No.1)
