"Clinically, the book has some excellent contributors with very strong chapters that make a major contribution and with conclusions that are likely to survive the effect of time. The editors have gathered very authoritative voices summarizing current knowledge on autism, which will undoubtedly make this textbook particularly useful for clinicians."-- "Mara Parellada, Ph.D., The American Journal of Psychiatry", "January 2011"
From the Inside Flap
This comprehensive textbook of autism spectrum disorders is designed to meet the growing need for cutting-edge research and treatment information for clinicians who encounter patients and clients with these disorders in their practice -- psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, speech therapists, and educators -- and for parents who seek to understand their children's disorders and treatment options.
The editors have assembled foremost clinical experts in autism spectrum disorders, as well as in genetics, pharmacology, pathophysiology, neurology, neuroimaging, and other fields that contribute to our understanding of these complex disorders. The book features exhaustive coverage of established treatment approaches but also covers alternative and experimental therapies in-depth. By so doing, the editors hope to establish a benchmark for understanding autism on a number of levels, with knowledge that is both broad and deep.
More patients are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders, and at earlier ages, than ever before, and these patients and their families receive services in increasingly diverse settings. Destined to become a classic, Textbook of Autism Spectrum Disorders is the volume for which patients, families, and clinicians have been waiting.
