AUTISM DECODED ~ THE CRACKS IN THE CODE

Part mystery, part history and a fascinating read . . .

Nancy Alspaugh-Jackson

This series aims to alter society's perception of people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and raise awareness of the problems that underlie it; thereby empowering the families and people concerned. 


BOOK ONE: UNDERSTANDING AUTISM

* Introduces autism from a broad perspective.

* Illustrates the history of ASD through the work of some of the doctors and educators of bygone times to show that ASD has always existed; albeit under a number of different guises.

* Offers an insight into many of the theories that abound, including some considered alternative.

* Uses personal accounts and insights from people with ASD to introduce the reader to the many facets of autism: both positive and negative.

* Shows you just how the positive aspects of ASD could interlink with savant skills whilst the more negative aspects give rise to various - and often overlooked - difficulties.

* Concludes by showing how the expectations of others can greatly influence the child's future.
