Description
One out of every 68 persons is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). In addition, about 1 percent of the world population is afflicted with this condition. There is a vast amount of conjecture surrounding the topic of autism, so it is crucial to make sure relevant and appropriate information is accessible to those living on the spectrum as well as to those closest to them. In Autism: The Ultimate Teen Guide, Francis Tabone provides a comprehensive look at autism spectrum disorder. Designed to help teens and their families gain a social, medical, and historical understanding of ASD, this book addresses the factors that have influenced the treatment of this condition. Featuring stories and quotes from teens and young adults who live with ASD, this book helps readers gain insight into the ASD brain and how it affects individuals. Topics covered in this book include -understanding behavioral elements -the origins and history of the term "Autism" -a neurological look at the various disorders on the spectrum -various types of treatment -how to interact with a person on the spectrum -accomplished people living with a disorder on the spectrum Firmly grounding this subject in facts while providing advice for those affected by ASD--both directly and indirectly--this book will be of interest to young adults of autism as well as to their family members and friends. As a result, readers will better understand how to interact and work with those with ASD as well as gain a broader acceptance of those who may be different. With helpful advice and a list of resources, Autism: The Ultimate Teen Guide is a much needed book for anyone wanting to know more about Autism Spectrum Disorder.
