Publisher's Summary

Autism is a brain disorder that deals with an abnormal self-absorption. It is marked with communication disorders and a short attention span. Autism involves restricted and repetitive behavior in patients and the signs of autism begin when a child is three years. There are two other autism related disorders which in medical terms are called Asperger's syndrome and pervasive developmental disorder - not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS). Both of these disorders fall under the category of autism spectrum disorders or ASD. This book is a simple handbook on autism and a guide for caregivers.

How to care for someone with Autism

I have two kids with autism, both can fuction in society, but one has learning disabilities and the other is highly intelligent, but lacks social skills. Both of them had different needs, and both affected my wife and I differently. This book is a great guide for someone with a family like ours. The nurse who wrote this text must have worked with a ton of people with autism, as she very clearly speaks from experience. She has learned from the time she has spent among people wit autism, and her advice is solid. I really wish we had this book 15 years ago.

Clinger narrates in his top form as usual. He is clear and crisp in his pronunciation, and he makes all of Jane's points.
