In this fresh and positive book, Stella Waterhouse investigates how people with autism perceive the world, and discusses the symptoms, behaviours and possible causes of this condition. In addition to examining the relation of autism to hyperactivity, Attention Deficit Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Tourette Syndrome, she also considers the impact of anxiety and the pros and cons of some of the current treatments including secretin, diet, tinted lenses and Auditory Integration Training. Her approach emphasises the importance of taking into account the views of people with autism and their families. This is a practical and sympathetic book, which will be of interest to professionals and non-professionals alike.
Stella Waterhouse has taught young children with learning disabilities and spent ten years working with emotionally disturbed adolescent boys. After five years as first Senior Care Officer, then Deputy Principal, of a community providing residential care and training to adults and teenagers with autism, she began to research the various problems they experienced in order to write this book: a project which has since led her to develop a service providing help and advice for people with autism and related disorders.
