Current rates of autism diagnoses have been cause for concern and research as well as rumor and misinformation. Important questions surround the condition: how early can an accurate diagnosis be made? At what age should intervention start? How can parents recognize warning signs? And what causes autism in the first place? There are no easy answers, but the Handbook of Early Intervention for Autism Spectrum Disorders gives researchers, practitioners, and academics the science and guidance to better understand and intervene. Background chapters survey the history of professional understanding of the disorders and the ongoing debate over autism as a single entity or a continuum. Chapters on best methods in screening, assessment, and diagnosis reflect the transition between the DSM-V and older diagnostic criteria. And at the heart of the book, the intervention section ranges from evidence-based strategies for developing core skills to ethical concerns, cultural considerations, and controversial treatments. Included in the Handbook's broad-based coverage: Designing curriculum programs for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Mainstream education for children with ASD. Teaching independent living skills to children with ASD. Social skills and play. Behavioral and mental health disorders in children with ASD. Training and supporting caregivers in evidence-based practices. Teaching cognitive skills to children with ASD. The Handbook of Early Intervention for Autism Spectrum Disorders is a comprehensive reference for researchers, professors, and graduate students as well as clinicians and other scientist-practitioners in clinical child and school psychology, child and adolescent psychiatry, social work, rehabilitation, special education, and pediatric medicine.

Answers to more than one hundred of the most frequently asked questions about autism, a disease that affects an estimated one in 250 children. At the age of two, Dawn Ham-Kucharski's son, Alex, was diagnosed with autism, and she was given little hope that he would ever express himself verbally or interact meaningfully with others. But, now at the age of six, Alex is an uplifting autism success story, due to his mother's tireless efforts to seek out an appropriate treatment program, educational plan, and socialization strategy. In The Autism Book, health and parenting journalist S. Jhoanna Robledo and Ham-Kucharski, an impassioned advocate for educational opportunity for autistic children, use their hard-won knowledge and experience to objectively and compassionately answer the most urgent questions of parents and educators of autistic children. The authors offer comprehensive information on diagnoses, causes, manifestations, treatment options, managing emotions, family relationships, parenting and lifestyle issues, education, and common worries.

Im Jahr 2045 ist die Welt ein hässlicher Ort: Die Erdölvorräte sind aufgebraucht, ein Großteil der Bevölkerung lebt in Armut. Einziger Lichtblick ist die OASIS, eine virtuelle Ersatzwelt, in der man leben, arbeiten, zur Schule gehen und spielen kann. Die OASIS ist ein ganzes Universum, es gibt Tausende von Welten, von denen jede ebenso einzigartig wie phantasievoll ist. Und sie hat ein Geheimnis. Der exzentrische Schöpfer der OASIS hat tief im virtuellen Code einen Schatz vergraben, und wer ihn findet, wird seinen gesamten Besitz erben – zweihundertvierzig Milliarden Dollar. Eine Reihe von Rätseln weist den Weg, doch der Haken ist: Niemand weiß, wo die Fährte beginnt. Bis Wade Watts, ein ganz normaler Junge, der am Stadtrand von Oklahoma City in einem Wohnwagen lebt, den ersten wirklich brauchbaren Hinweis findet. Die Jagd ist eröffnet ... »›Ready Player One‹ ist absolut fantastisch – ein großer Spaß für den Geek in mir. Ich hatte das Gefühl, als sei das Buch nur für mich geschrieben worden.« Patrick Rothfuss

Untersuchungen in Europa, Kanada und den USA ergaben, dass bei sechs bis sieben von tausend Personen eine Autismus-Spektrum-Störung (ASS) diagnostiziert wird. Was bedeutet das? Mit »Autismus als Kontextblindheit« beschreibt Peter Vermeulen eine neue Sichtweise zum Autismus-Verständnis. Seine Kernaussage lautet: Menschen mit Autismus zeigen in der Wahrnehmung ihrer objektbezogenen und sozialen Umwelt Probleme bei der schnellen, vorbewussten, intuitiven Erfassung und Nutzung von Kontextinformation. Dieses im Vergleich zu anderen Menschen herabgesetzte Gespür für Kontext ist hirnorganisch begründet und erklärt die autistischen Besonderheiten in Wahrnehmung, sozialer Interaktion, Kommunikation und Denken. Peter Vermeulen knüpft (kritisch) an viele bestehende neurokognitive Erklärungsansätze an und untermauert und belegt seine Thesen mit zahlreichen wissenschaftlichen Untersuchungsergebnissen, aber auch mit Beispielen aus seiner langjährigen praktischen Erfahrung mit Menschen aus dem Autismus-Spektrum. Allgemeinverständlich und unterhaltsam geschrieben eröffnet das Buch Betreuern, Lehrern, Begleitern und Eltern von Menschen mit Autismus neue Sichtweisen. Es zeigt Strategien zur Kompensation bzw. Hinweise und Beispiele für eine autismusfreundliche Gestaltung der Umwelt und gibt so neue Impulse für den Alltag der Betroffenen.
