    Comprehensive and authoritative, Autism Spectrum Disorder (revised): The Complete Guide to Understanding Autism, explains all aspects of autism. It is written for parents, educators, caregivers, and others looking for accurate information and expert insight. Newly updated to reflect the latest research, treatment methods, and DSM-V criteria, this invaluable book covers:

    • The causes of autism spectrum disorders
    • Getting an accurate diagnosis
    • Treatments based on behavioral, psychological, and biomedical interventions
    • Coping strategies for families and education needs and programs
    • Living and working conditions for adults with ASD
    • Community interaction and teaching strategies and resources for educators and other professionals.

    The author, a parent of a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and a former professional in the field, has spent years researching ASD. This reference guide was written to help parents, professionals, and other members of the community learn more about autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and it presents a thorough overview of the disorder, from diagnosis through adulthood.

    In addition to the author's personal and professional experiences, the chapters include insights from persons on the spectrum, as well as advice from professionals and other parents. A particular strength of the book is the author's emphasis on pointing the reader to additional sources of information, and the pages are filled with references to hundreds of helpful books, organizations, and websites. Containing concise, practical information on topics ranging from biomedical interventions to community life, this is an intelligently written and well-organized resource guide. (Softcover; 400 pages.)
