Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
".....clearly written discussions of diagnosis, phenomenology, and interventions in autistic spectrum disorders..........Fascinating accounts of HFA and AS give some access to the unusual subjective worlds of people affected by these disorders."
(A Journal of Reviews and Commentary in Mental Health, (March 1999)
"This is a book that should be in medical libraries, and on the shelves of many child and adolescent psychiatrics. "
(Canadian Child Psychiatry Review, 10:3 (2001)
Booknews
Contributions include personal essays from high-functioning people with autism/AS, as well as chapters on diagnostic, neuropsychological, and treatment issues, and on related conditions. All contributors discuss their view as to whether a distinction between AS and HFA exists, or whether these are different labels for essentially the same condition. Topics include the history of AS; the confusion over other diagnostic concepts, such as schizoid personality disorders, and semantic-pragmatic disorder; and how language and communication in individuals with AS or HFA deviates from the general population.
