Is Asperger syndrome a syndrome in its own right or is it a form of autism?  Sufferers from the syndrome are like autistic individuals in that they show the same kind of impairments from early childhood; yet they are unlike them in being far more verbally articulate and socially adapted.  They can be highly intelligent and reminiscent of eccentrics with their unusual interests, special skills and unworldliness.  In this volume, several of the major experts in the field discuss the diagnostic criteria of the syndrome, named after Hans Asperger who first described the condition in the 1940s, and illustrate their views with case studies drawn from their clinical practice.  These clinical studies are complemented by personal accounts and placed in a new theoretical framework.  Significantly, Uta Frith provides the first insights to reflect a very modern awareness of the broad continuum of autistic disorders.

This is the story of Brian, who is Charlie's brother. He wishes Charlie, his special-needs brother, could just be "normal" and thinks it's not fair for Charlie to have so many problems. He feels frustrated because everything seems to be about Charlie. Brian wishes his family could do things like most families do. When the decision is made for Charlie to live in a Residential Center, Brian attempts to understand his confusing feelings. Is it my fault because I complained? Will the same thing happen to me? With the help of his family, Brian starts to understand his feelings and accepts that it is all right for Charlie to be himself, and he is also proud to be "Charlie's Brother". When a family is living with a child with a physical or developmental disability, or perhaps a chronic disease, there are numerous issues which surround their "normal" siblings.

There have been huge advances in diagnosing autism and in the development of effective interventions that can change children's lives.  In this informative book, Lynn Kern Koegel, a leading clinician, researcher, and cofounder of the renowned Autism Research Center at the University of California at Santa Barbara, combines her cutting-edge expertise with the everyday perspectives of Claire LaZebnik, a writer whose experience with a son with autism provides a rare view into the disorder.  Together, they draw on the highly effective "pivotal response" approach developed at the center to provide concrete ways of improving the symptoms of autism and the emotional struggles that surround it.  They remind readers never to lose sight of the humor that lurks in the disability's quirkiness or the importance of enjoying your child.  From the shock of diagnosis to the step-by-step work with verbal communication, social interaction, self-stimulation, meltdowns, fears, and more, the answers are here-in a book that is as warm and nurturing as it is authoritative.

This book has answers to more than one hundred of the most frequently asked questions about autism, a disease that affects an estimated one in 250 children.

Dawn Ham-Kucharski's son, Alex, was diagnosed with autism at the age of two, and she was given little hope that he would ever express himself verbally or to communicate meaningfully with others.  But, now at the age of six, Alex is an inspiring autism success story, due to his mother's tireless efforts to seek out an effective treatment program, educational plan, and socialization strategy.

In The Autism Book, health and parenting journalist S.

Three years ago, magazine editor Denise Brodey's precocious four-year-old son, Toby, was diagnosed with a combination of sensory integration dysfunction and childhood depression.  Struggling to make sense of her new, often chaotic, often lonely world, the thing she found most comforting was talking with other, hopeful, and insightful parents of kids with special needs, and learning how they coped with the feelings they encountered throughout the day.  In The Elephant in the Playroom, parents from across the country write in an honest and intimate way about the joyful highs and disordered lows of raising children who are "not quite normal".  Laying bare the emotional, medical, and social challenges they face, these stories address issues ranging from if and when to medicate a child, to how to get a child who is overly sensitive to the texture of food to eat lunch.
