About the Author:

John Richer is Consultant Clinical Psychologist in Paediatrics at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. He has been involved in the field of autism for thirty years, first in research and now in clinical practice. Sheila Coates is Head of Service for Autism, Oxford. She has worked in the field of autism since the early seventies and was instrumental in setting up the Chinnor Project, now known as the Chinnor Resource Units for Autistic Children.

Review:

I can recommend this book as an honest, sensitive and informative discussion of the many aspects of autism. I found Autism: The search for Coherence to be useful, instructive and valuable. I would recommend it to any other professional or parent who is interested in the area of Autism Spectrum Disorder. (Louissa Plasto, Senior Teacher)

Bringing together scientific, therapist, teacher, and first person accounts, this book helps to lead the reader to a re-evaluation of beliefs about autism and to consider the range of perspectives in forming their own personal coherence. This process would be of value to a researcher designing a study and to any person directly involved in the care of those with autism. Finally, this book may also be of interest to new students wishing to gain a broad, current view of the area and to parents of children with autism. (International Journal of Disability, Development and Education)

This is an easy to read book which accumulates the knowledge and expertise of many professionals as well as personal experience. The book gives a good overview of the field of Autism and how extensive it is. It presents opinions and views of experts and professionals as well as some of the most recent research in the area. The book covers the medical, psychological, educational and biological aspects of Autism and helps us to understand the disorder from each of these perspectives. The most enjoyable and touching aspect of the book is the final section, Personal Stories. It brings to light the determination and hopes that families have. (Speach)
