Can ASD be - should it be - 'cured'? The updated and extensively revised 2nd edition of this popular book explores answers to these questions based on the latest developments in research and practice. Individual chapters summarise what is known about the 'first causes ' of ASD, their effects on the brain, and on psychological functioning. Other chapters summarise methods of assessment, treatment, education and support. Illustrated with real-life accounts of people with ASD and examples of current 'best practice', this book provides essential information in an accessible and lively form."@en ;
