9780091891602: Autism Spectrum Disorders: The Complete Guide

The National Autistic Society estimates that Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) now affects 500,000 families in the UK alone, while one in 86 children have an ASD-related special educational need. Autism Spectrum Disorders is an essential one-stop reference guide introducing the reader to an understanding of this complex disorder, touching on all aspects related to ASD (including Asperger's Syndrome), with a detailed resource section for those wanting more in-depth information on specific areas. The book is invaluable not only for parents and professionals who work with children but also for potential employees and anyone who works in the public sphere. With chapters on the causes of ASD, diagnosis, treatment and diet, this is a uniquely accessible guide providing practical information in a clear and concise manner. 'Given autism's high-profile media, Chantal Sicile-Kira's book could not be more timely. This will be one of those smart, authoritative, user-friendly guides which will be the essential volume that both parents, health professionals and a wide general readership will reach for in order to fathom this confounding condition' Douglas Kennedy.

About the Author:

Chantal Sicile-Kira has over twenty years' professional experience in ASD throughout the world and is uniquely qualified to write on this complex subject being the parent of an autistic child. Chantal currently writes and presents workshops on advocating for children with special needs and, with the help of her son, trains college students to be future autism professionals.

Review:

"This will be one of those smart, authoritative, user-friendly volumes which will not only demystify autism for the public, but will also be the essential book that both parents, health professionals, and a wide general readership will reach for in order to fathom this confounding condition." Douglas Kennedy "This book will provide important information and insights to help you understand and participate in the child's development through having a better knowledge of this spectrum disorder. This reference guide is also invaluable for anyone in the community who comes across individuals with autism in their line of work." Anthony Edwards, Dr Greene, ER "Both parents and professional will find a wealth of useful information in this user-friendly book, written by a parent who really knows about living with a child on the autism spectrum." Cathy Mercer, National Autistic Society "full of inspiration, humour and compassion - it's also stuffed with great practical tips" Baby & You "Parents will find this book a huge help...because Chantal is a parent herself, parents will find her approach very helpful. She packs a huge amount of information into this book without overwhelming the reader." Sarah Benson, Autism Helpline
