Overview

Usually diagnosed in childhood, Asperger syndrome is a lifelong social disorder characterized by a lack of empathy, little ability to form friendships, one-sided conversations, clumsy movements, and intense absorption in special interests. While Asperger syndrome has received increasing attention from researchers, clinicians, educators, and parents in recent years, numerous central questions about the disorder remain unanswered. This groundbreaking volume brings together preeminent scholars and practitioners to offer a definitive statement of what is currently known about Asperger syndrome and to highlight promising leads in research and clinical practice. Diagnostic and conceptual issues are explored in depth, and the disorder's assessment, treatment, and neurobiology are thoroughly reviewed. The book examines the effects of Asperger syndrome on an individual's social, communication, and behavioral development, and identifies the challenges that individuals with AS face at home, in school and the workplace, and in other settings. The volume concludes with several parent essays that exemplify the trials and tribulations--as well as the joys and the victories--of life with a child with Asperger syndrome.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mani Pavuluri, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is an outstanding book in which the editors bring together the high quality research that currently exists on the syndrome and the breadth of clinical knowledge that truly fills a critical gap in literature for professionals and members of the community.
Purpose: This book is written at the time when the clinical community has developed a growing awareness of diagnosing using DSM-IV and ICD-10. Still, there is a wide gap between the way the researchers speak about it and the treating community. This book is expected to help close this gap.
Audience: This book is an extraordinary effort, as the editors compile years of research and organize it in a clear manner for clinicians, researchers, students, and parents alike. Editors and contributors are world authorities on the subject of Asperger Syndrome.
Features: Solid data on behavioral neuropsychological and neurobiological perspectives of Asperger Syndrome are provided. This book offers clinical depth and scientific breadth in all the relevant areas. A few colorful illustrations of brain scans are also provided.
Assessment: This book is a critical addition on the subject and one of the topmost books that is a "must have" for those working with children with this disorder and those who are studying child psychiatry and psychology.
