Autism and Asperger Syndrome reviews what is known about adults with autism in terms of their social functioning, educational and occupational status. Focusing mainly on the problems experienced by high functioning people with autism - and those working with and caring for them - the book offers practical ways of dealing with their difficulties. Each chapter makes use of clinical case material to illustrate the kinds of problems faced and ways in which they may be overcome. First-hand accounts from people with autism are included and links with psychiatric illness in later life are explored.

This updated edition is helpful to both professionals and families with autistic children and has been completely updated to take account of the latest research in the field. It also includes an additional chapter on the differences between autism and Asperger syndrome.

Product Description:

Autism and related disorders affect almost every area of an individual's functioning. Yet little has been written on the outcome of autism in adult life, particularly for adults who are of high ability but who continue to be handicapped by their social, communication and behavioural difficulties. "Autism and Asperger Syndrome" reviews what is known about adults with autism in terms of their social functioning and educational and occupational status. Focusing on the problems experienced by people with autism and ways of overcoming them, this new edition has been completely updated to take account of research in the field and includes an additional chapter on the differentiation between autism and Asperger Syndrome. It should be welcomed by professionals and those caring for people with autism.

Review:

'This is necessary reading for child and adolescent psychiatrists, consultants in learning disability and adult psychiatrists too ... an invaluable reference resource.' - British Journal of Psychiatry

'An essential read for anyone working with, or interested in, autism ... written in an easy-to-read style that will suit professionals, relatives and carers alike. This, together with its practical orientation and its relatively low purchase price, should make those nurses working with adults with autism think seriously about purchasing it.' - Mental Health Nursing
