Mindblindness : an essay on autism and theory of mind by Simon Baron-Cohen( Book )

38 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Mindblindness, Simon Baron-Cohen presents a model of the evolution and development of "mindreading." He argues that we mindread all the time, effortlessly, automatically, and mostly unconsciously. It is the natural way in which we interpret, predict, and participate in social behavior and communication. We ascribe mental states to people: states such as thoughts desires, knowledge, and intentions. Building on many years of research, Baron-Cohen concludes that children with autism suffer from "mindblindness" as a result of a selective impairment in mindreading. For these children the world is essentially devoid of mental things. Baron-Cohen develops a theory that draws on data from comparative psychology, from developmental psychology, and from neuropsychology. He argues that specific neurocognitive mechanisms have evolved that allow us to mindread, to make sense of actions, to interpret gazes as meaningful, and to decode "the language of the eyes."

Synaesthesia : classic and contemporary readings( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Synaesthesia is a condition in which a stimulus in one sensory modality automatically triggers a perceptual experience in anothor. For example, on hearing a sound, the person immediately sees a colour. How does this happen? Is it a real phenomenon? Why do some people develop this condition and not others? And might synaesthesia provide important clues about the organization of the normal brain."--Publisher's note on back cover
A mother's courage : talking back to autism( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Narrated by Oscar winner Kate Winslet and directed by Oscar nominee Fridrik Thor Fridriksson, this inspiring film follows one woman's quest to unlock her autistic son's mind. Margret, whose ten-year-old son Keli is severely autistic, has tried a number of treatments to help her son. Consumed by an unquenchable thirst for knowledge about this mysterious and complex condition, she travels from her home in Iceland to the United States and Europe, meeting with top autism experts and advocates. She also connects with several other families touched by autism, whose struggles echo her own: the endless doctor visits and experiments with different treatments, the complication of doing everyday tasks, and the inability to communicate; perhaps the most painful and frustrating aspect of autism. But as she comes across innovative new therapies with the potential to break down the walls of autism, Margret finds hope that her son may be able to express himself on a level she never thought possible. Among the experts and advocates Margret encounters are: (1) Dr. Temple Grandin, best-selling author and autism advocate, recently the subject of an HBO film starring Claire Danes; (2) Dr. David G. Amaral, Research Director, MIND (Medical Investigation of Neurodevelopmental Disorders) Institute; (3) Dr. Simon Baron-Cohen, Director, Autism Research Centre at the University of Cambridge; Dr. Geraldine Dawson, Chief Science Officer, Autism Speaks; (4) Soma Mukhopadhyay, who developed the Rapid Prompting Method to teach her autistic son Tito, now a published author; (5) Portia Iverson and Jonathan Shestack, parents of an autistic child and founders of Cure Autism Now.

An exact mind : an artist with Asperger syndrome by Peter Myers( Book )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Myers's intricate and ornately patterned drawings are brought together for the first time in this volume, which is the fascinating result of the collaboration of an artist and two scientists. The beautiful, complex images (included in full-page colour as well as black and white reproductions) serve as a rare window into the precision and creativity of the Asperger mind at work. Peter Myers was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome in 1996 and his work reflects his stunning ability to plan and to organize visual information, and to embed illusions within his pictures. In explanatory text alongside the pictures, psychologists Simon Baron-Cohen and Sally Wheelright discuss the work's deep psychological significance, demonstrating in accessible language their ground-breaking systemizing theory of how the autistic mind processes information

Handbook of autism and anxiety by Thompson E Davis( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has evolved greatly since Asperger's day. And as our clinical understanding of this spectrum of disorders has grown, so has recognition of the connections between anxiety disorders and ASD-a welcome development, but also a source of confusion for many in the field. The Handbook of Autism and Anxiety brings together leading experts to explain this comorbidity, the diagnostic similarities and differences between the two disorders, and the extent to which treatment for each can be coordinated for optimum results. Focusing on repetitive behaviors, social difficulties, and fears as core components of anxiety disorders as well as ASD, contributors discuss specific symptoms in depth to aid in diagnosis. Assessment and treatment issues relevant to the autism-anxiety connection are considered in clinical and school contexts. And an especially timely conclusion details how key changes in the DSM-5 affect the diagnosis and conceptualization of each disorder. Key topics addressed in the Handbook include: Phenotypic variability in ASD: clinical considerations. Etiologic factors and transdiagnostic processes. Social worries and difficulties: autism and/or social anxiety disorder? Implementing group CBT interventions for youth with ASD and anxiety in clinical practice. Autism and anxiety in school settings. DSM-5 and autism spectrum disorder. The Handbook of Autism and Anxiety is an essential resource for researchers, clinicians/professionals, and graduate students in child and school psychology, psychiatry, social work, education, clinical counseling, and behavioral therapy
