Explaining Autism Spectrum Disorder 



What is an Autism Spectrum Disorder? With Autism and Asperger syndrome now reckoned to affect one in 100 of the population, this is a question that more and more people are asking. Clare Lawrence provides a clear and concise introduction to this fascinating and perplexing subject. Written in accessible, non-specialist language, the book provides an ideal basis for parents, carers, teachers and employers to understand what is the Autistic Spectrum.

"Clare beautifully summarises both traditional and contemporary research in the sort of nutshell you can only construct if you truely understand something."
