Wird beim eigenen Kind Autismus diagnostiziert, ist das für viele Eltern zunächst ein Schock. Die Ausprägung und das genaue Erscheinungsbild der Diagnose hängen zwar von der Einordnung innerhalb des Autismus-Spektrums ab, doch Schwierigkeiten in der Interaktion mit anderen Menschen sowie im flexiblen Denken sind immer zu erwarten. Wichtig ist daher, dass den Familien professionell und empathisch zur Seite gestanden wird. In diesem Buch erklärt der Autor, wie Pädagogen in den unterschiedlichen Tätigkeitsfeldern die betroffenen Kinder als auch deren Familien bestmöglich und individuell unterstützen können. Anhand von Beispielen aus der Praxis und unter Einbezug wissenschaftlicher Erkenntnisse werden die charakteristischen Denk- und Verhaltensweisen autistischer Kinder verständlich dargestellt und Übungen zur Förderung angeleitet. Auch Eltern oder Geschwister bekommen durch dieses Buch eine fundierte und gut verständliche Einführung in die Welt des autistischen Kindes.

'A wise SatNav for what is often a bewildering, or even scary, zone of parenting. The book offers real-world, road-tested, child-first and family-friendly advice; while also highlighting the twin truths that autism is not a tragedy, and that adaptation and acceptance are not resignation' David Mitchell, bestselling author and co-translator of The Reason I Jump 'A must-read for anyone with an autistic child in their life' Laura James, author of Odd Girl Out Written by Jessie Hewitson, an award-winning journalist at The Times, Autism is the book she wishes she had read when her son was first given the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. It combines her own experiences with tips from autistic adults, other parents - including author David Mitchell - as well as advice from autism professionals and academics such as Professor Simon Baron-Cohen. Autism looks at the condition as a difference rather than a disorder and includes guidance on: · What to do if you think your child is autistic · How to understand and support your child at school and at home · Mental health and autism · The differences between autistic girls and boys 'It is incredibly useful and informative, full of new research and interviews that put right an awful lot of misinformation. I cannot recommend this highly enough' The Sun 'Exceptionally useful and informative' Uta Frith, Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Development, UCL

Adults with Asperger Syndrome (AS) often have difficulties acquiring relationship skills due to the defining characteristics of the syndrome, experiences with peers during childhood and adolescence, and the expectations of their partners. However, an increasing number do go on to achieve happy and successful long-term relationships with non-spectrum (NS) partners. This supportive book will give NS partners a better understanding of NS/AS relationships, and of what other NS partners have found to be helpful in terms of better understanding themselves and their partners, and enriching their relationships. Drawing on interviews with over 100 people in NS/AS relationships, as well as on their own experiences of having family members on the autism spectrum, the authors explore the key differences which may impact upon AS/NS relationships, such as communication, social skills, and sensory issues, and offer tried-and-tested advice on how to surmount difficulties and make things work. The book includes chapters on coping with stress and meltdowns, parenting, positive AS qualities and how to use them to their full advantage in a relationship, as well as advice on how the NS partner can ensure that their own needs are met. This book will provide support and encouragement to those in a relationship with someone who has been diagnosed with AS, or who is suspected of having AS, and will also be a useful resource for counsellors and other professionals who wish to deepen their understanding of AS/NS relationships.
