In this fresh and positive book, Stella Waterhouse investigates how people with autism perceive the world, and discusses the symptoms, behaviours and possible causes of this condition.
In addition to examining the relation of autism to hyperactivity, Attention Deficit Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Tourette Syndrome, she also considers the impact of anxiety and the pros and cons of some of the current treatments including secretin, diet, tinted lenses and Auditory Integration Training.
Her approach emphasises the importance of taking into account the views of people with autism and their families.
This is a practical and sympathetic book, which will be of interest to professionals and non-professionals alike.
