Publisher's Summary

This audiobook is a comprehensive guide in understanding how to deal with a person on the autism spectrum within the medical system, formulating effective communication strategies, and developing best care practices. It covers sensory issues, pain tolerance, body awareness, communication challenges, legal and ethical issues, HIPPA compliance, Americans with Disabilities Act, and much more.

It's important for healthcare professionals to realize that communication starts at the admissions desk, and follows through to the patient's discharge. Whether the patient is simply going for a routine doctor's appointment, or getting admitted for major surgery, the autism patient needs specialized care for optimal results. This audiobook is geared for use in healthcare curriculum courses, as well as use as a guidebook for all healthcare and allied healthcare providers.

This Book May Have Saved My Life

The medical profession knows very little about the specific issues associated with the treatment of autistic patients. Yes, we are all different, and not every chapter dealt with an issue that applied directly to me. But the chapter on anesthesia alone could easily save any autistic life at some point. I buy the paperback version of the book and give it to every doctor that treats me as a gift. Much of this information is not readily available, not all in one place. If you are autistic get this book.
