New English author writes ‘pocket encyclopedia’ on Autism and Aspergers.
Former Filton and Bath College lecturer Dr Ian Hale has written a startling new book on Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome which provides an information-packed, illustrated, pocket-size “must read” encyclopedia for anyone with an interest in or connection with the subject. “The Insider’s Guide to Autism and Aspergers” is available now as an e-book from Amazon uk, Vook.com, Barnes and Noble.com and iTunes.
This innovative work is a simply written Guide, avoiding jargon, to all areas of the Autism Spectrum including Asperger’s. It uncovers the history of these conditions and includes many famous examples of Autistic and Asperger achievers including Isaac Newton and Temple Grandin. It is full of anecdotes from the author’s professional and deeply personal experience as an Autistic “Aspie”. It is by turns enquiring, witty, mysterious, eye-opening, dark and ultimately hopeful.
The short, easy-to-read yet authoritative format is for everyone affected by, giving care to or diagnosed with an Autism condition. It fills a critical void in the canon of Autism literature, providing Autistics, professionals and parents with best practice standards for screening, assessment, diagnosis and education, while revealing and de-mystifying fascinating information about medicine and health in general.
While explaining the history of Autism, its insights, theories and conclusion are based on the latest research from many disciplines, backed up with famous examples of Autism throughout the ages. If you want to experience and understand the world through the eyes and ears of an autistic person; this is the book to buy.
