Synopsis

"This accessible introduction to caring for a child with autism is an ideal resource for the families of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders as well as for the professionals who work with them. In clear and simple language and with many illustrations, the authors explain the nature of this condition and its variations, and tackle common problems experienced in everyday activities such as eating, sleeping and going to the toilet. They also suggest strategies for coping with aggression and tantrums, approaches to preoccupations and compulsions, and suggest ways in which to improve communication and social skills. Based on up-to-date research and using many case examples, the authors consider each problem and its causes step by step, and suggest a number of solutions."
