The book is invaluable not only for parents and professionals who work with children but also for potential employees and anyone who works in the public sphere. With chapters on the causes of ASD, diagnosis, treatment and diet, this is a uniquely accessible guide providing practical information in a clear and concise manner.

'Given autism's high-profile media, Chantal Sicile-Kira's book could not be more timely. This will be one of those smart, authoritative, user-friendly guides which will be the essential volume that both parents, health professionals and a wide general readership will reach for in order to fathom this confounding condition' Douglas Kennedy

Review:

"This will be one of those smart, authoritative, user-friendly volumes which will not only demystify autism for the public, but will also be the essential book that both parents, health professionals, and a wide general readership will reach for in order to fathom this confounding condition." ( Douglas Kennedy)

"This book will provide important information and insights to help you understand and participate in the child's development through having a better knowledge of this spectrum disorder. This reference guide is also invaluable for anyone in the community who comes across individuals with autism in their line of work." ( Anthony Edwards, Dr Greene, ER)

"Both parents and professional will find a wealth of useful information in this user-friendly book, written by a parent who really knows about living with a child on the autism spectrum." ( Cathy Mercer, National Autistic Society)

"full of inspiration, humour and compassion - it's also stuffed with great practical tips" ( Baby & You)

"Parents will find this book a huge help...because Chantal is a parent herself, parents will find her approach very helpful. She packs a huge amount of information into this book without overwhelming the reader." ( Sarah Benson, Autism Helpline)

From the Publisher:

Autism used to be a rare condition. But over the last few years a growing number of children have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) – the Department of Health has recently estimated around 1 in every 86 children have an ASD-related special educational need. And with the recent controversy concerning autism and the MMR jab, there has never been a greater need for a fully comprehensive, accessible guide to autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, PDD and other Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Autism Spectrum Disorders is this guide. Based upon Chantal Sicile-Kira’s 20 years unique experience with the disorders, first as a professional and then as a parent, this indispensable handbook explains all aspects of these complex conditions. Invaluable for parents, professional carers and anyone who works in the public sphere, it concisely covers:

· The myths and history of autism
· How to tell if a child has an ASD
· Why people with ASDs act the way they do
· The causes of ASDs – including an analysis of the all important MMR vaccine and its relation to autism
· How to get what the child with ASD needs – specialist care, schooling, funding and medical attention
· Treatments, Therapies and Dietary Interventions – what works and what doesn’t, and how to know what is worth trying for each individual
· Education – Information and resources for the teacher and other professionals
· Adolescence – how teachers and parents can help a teenager survive puberty
· Family Life – practical advice on how to continue with a ‘normal’ family life, how to travel and take vacations and how to help siblings of an autistic child
· Life after Secondary School – how professionals and parents can help with a young adult’s transition to college or work
· How to look after yourself whilst you are caring for another

The book includes a detailed resource section and in-depth descriptions of how you can find out about the ASDs to empower yourself and get the very best from the resources available.

Illustrated throughout with stories of Sicile-Kira’s own experiences as well as those of autism sufferers and carers, Autism Spectrum Disorders is a supportive and personal book. Practical and informative, straightforward and easy to read, this handbook is the ultimate, one-stop guide to every aspect of Autism Spectrum Disorders.
