Synopsis: An excellent source of practical ideas that form the basis for programmes of intervention for children with autism. The content is primarily aimed at those working with children who have normal, or near normal, cognitive abilities, rather than those who work with children whose autism accompanies severe learning disabilities. This book offers children with autism, an accessible route to a social skills programme and practitioners with the opportunity to help students enhance their quality of life. This approach to remediation appreciates that a disorder affecting social functioning should be remediated by focusing on this area. The authors are speech language therapists who work both in the community and in educational settings.

About the Author: Maureen Aarons and Tessa Gittens are specialist Speech Language Therapists working for NHS Trusts in the London area, in the field of special education. They have collaborated for a number of years both as lecturers and as advisers on autism to the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists. They are joint authors of the 'Handbook of Autism: A guide for Parents and Professionals' (2nd edition, 1999), 'The Autistic Continuum: An Assessment and Intervention Schedule' and 'A Little Bit Autistic'.
