This comprehensive textbook of autism spectrum disorders is designed to meet the growing need for cutting-edge research and treatment information for clinicians who encounter patients and clients with these disorders in their practice psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, speech therapists, and educators and for parents who seek to understand their children s disorders and treatment options. The editors have assembled foremost clinical experts in autism spectrum disorders, as well as in genetics, pharmacology, pathophysiology, neurology, neuroimaging, and other fields that contribute to our understanding of these complex disorders. The book features exhaustive coverage of established treatment approaches but also covers alternative and experimental therapies in-depth. By so doing, the editors hope to establish a benchmark for understanding autism on a number of levels, with knowledge that is both broad and deep. More patients are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders, and at earlier ages, than ever before, and these patients and their families receive services in increasingly diverse settings. Destined to become a classic, Textbook of Autism Spectrum Disorders is the volume for which patients, families, and clinicians have been waiting.

Review:

"Clinically, the book has some excellent contributors with very strong chapters that make a major contribution and with conclusions that are likely to survive the effect of time. The editors have gathered very authoritative voices summarizing current knowledge on autism, which will undoubtedly make this textbook particularly useful for clinicians."-- "Mara Parellada, Ph.D., The American Journal of Psychiatry", "January 2011"

Book Description American Psychiatric Association Publishing, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. An undertaking that is as ambitious in its scope as it is masterful in its presentation, Textbook of Autism Spectrum Disorders presents a comprehensive view of the history, etiology, diagnosis, pathophysiology, risk factors, and treatment of this multifaceted groups of disorders. Because more patients are being diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders than ever before, and at earlier ages, research initiatives have been established to address the most critical scientific questions in terms of biological markers, neuroimaging, and treatment efficacy. The resulting deluge of scholarship and research findings has made staying current in the field a daunting task.To meet the challenge, the editors, among the foremost authorities in the field, have assembled experts from the full range of specialties that are critical to a comprehensive understanding of autism. They have drawn on their clinical experience and scientific knowledge to create this benchmark publication, which includes:  A scientific history of autism, starting from its first identification by Kanner in 1943, that explores the competing theories of etiology and treatment up to the present day, in order to contextualize autism spectrum disorders, both scientifically and culturally Chapters on clinical evaluation that are presented within a cohesive multidisciplinary framework Thorough coverage of diagnostic testing and a review of the status of current research on biological markers that brings the reader up-to-date Chapters on risk factors, both perinatal and environmental, which help to identify areas of potential intervention Extensive coverage of experimental, novel, and alternative therapies, which may be helpful to patients and their families, as well as provide clinicians with valuable new treatment perspectives An impressively comprehensive section on treatment options to help clinicians develop cutting-edge skills. The editors are well aware that a book of this kind could be intimidating, so they have included a number of features that make the text reader-friendly:  A preface and introduction that help to introduce and contextualize the material  Chapter concluding summaries, followed by condensed Summary Points that aid the reader in identifying and mastering the most critical information Liberal use of tables and figures that aid with identification of neurobiological and clinical features, differential diagnoses, drug comparisons, and more The diversity and breadth of the material make this book an indispensable resource for psychiatrists, psychologists, neurologists, social workers, speech therapists, educators, and patients and their families as well.
