Author(s): Sally Ozonoff (University of California, USA)

Aspergers & Autism

Asperger syndrome and high-functioning autism are detected earlier and more accurately now than ever before. Children and teenagers with these disorders often stand out for their precocious intelligence and language abilities - yet profound social difficulties can limit every aspect of their lives.This hopeful, compassionate guide shows parents how to work with their children's unique impairments and capabilities to help them learn to engage more fully with the world and live as self-sufficiently as possible. It offers practical ideas for helping children relate more comfortably to peers, learn the rules of appropriate behaviour and participate more fully in school and family life. It also explains what scientists know about autistic spectrum disorders and how they are diagnosed and treated.Real-life success stories, problem-solving ideas, and matter-of-fact advice on everything from educational placements to career planning make this a useful reference for families.
