“What do you get when you combine experience, impeccable research and common sense into a new book for people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), their parents, and professionals who work with them? Autism Spectrum Disorders from A to Z, by Barbara Doyle and Emily Iland. A product of passion, punctuated with case studies of real life experiences and presented in an easy-to-read format, this is a must have book for every parent and professional new to ASD—and for those that have been around the block a few hundred times!”

This book is highly recommended if you are an educator, a parent, or family member, who is curious and caring enough to learn the ins and outs of Autism Spectrum Disorder. This book just about covers everything.
The English version was published in 2004. The Spanish version, "Los Trastornos del Espectro de Autismo de la A a la Z.", was published in 2005. It was honored with the International Latino Book Award for Health that year and, in 2007, both books received the Exceptional Parent Magazine "Symbol of Excellence Award."
Emily Iland has worked tirelessly to help her son, and the children, grandchildren, siblings and spouses of many others to obtain assistance and develop abilities once thought unattainable. She has developed programs with the assistance of the local school district and law enforcement/city agencies to protect, educate and aid the special needs community. Her sister is equally accomplished.
This book is truly special and will benefit anyone who reads it.
Autism Spectrum Disorders from A to Z: is one of our primary resources for understanding ASD. We like several things about this book. First, its authors have personal knowledge of autism. Emily's son, Tom, has ASD. Barbara is Tom's aunt. Emily and Barbara share Tom and what he has taught them with us. Second, we like the book organization. Every chapter begins with a statement of what the chapter contents will teach the reader. Each chapter closes with a summary of chapter themes and lessons. Third, the book is written in an informal and friendly style that is accessible to parents, families, teachers and other professionals and to persons who have ASD. Fourth, the format is engaging and easy to follow. The pages and print are large and the authors make liberal use of, bullets, life examples and sample letters and checklists. Fifth, this book is available in Spanish.
ASD from A to Z is a wonderful resource for families and professionals who have limited time for reading and research due to the demands of living life. The book does not try to be a complete resource. Instead it focuses on the process of identifying, testing for and diagnosing ASD. It helps the individuals with ASD and their family members understand the context of diagnosis, the diagnostic assessment tools used and the process of receiving and understanding the diagnosis itself. The authors provide resources and research suggestions for understanding the potential causes of autism and share how to form or participate in information sharing groups and ideas. The authors provide even more information on their Website, [...] This book has earned the EP Symbol of Excellence.
There wasn't so much technical jargon that it interfered with my reading and understanding the material.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about Autism Spectum disorders and how to manage your life with them. I've loaned this book to 2 preschool teachers and a family that is trying to understand the Spectrum disorders.
This book is a necessary element to your home library or a great gift to family members and teachers alike.
