Autism is a neuro-developmental disorder that allows a unique window on the relationship between mind and brain. Autism is characterized by impaired social interaction and communication as well as repetitive behaviors and restricted interests. The consensus of this disorder for everyday life adaptation are extremely variable. Studies indicate that the number of diagnosed cases of Autism, or autistic spectrum disorder, is increasing with around 0.6% of the population affected. Though infantile autism was first described almost 60 years ago and autism has been the subject of intense research activities even since, the origin of the condition is still not understood.

Review:

The aim of this book is to consolidate our knowledge of the characteristics and manifestations of autism, whilst introducing new techniques to further this field of research. This will be a valuable resource for both established and new researchers who wish to understand how we can take forth our knowledge of autism and apply innovative technologies in future research investigations. * The Psychologist * This book is a valuable collection of recent findings about autism and ASDs, and should definitely be within hands-reach of any serious researcher in the field. I recommend it for academic researchers, graduate students, clinicians and other professionals. * Applied Cognitive Psychology, 18 *
