Abstract:

What is autism really like? Academic literature often defines autism in a clinical, pathology-orientated way, whereas personal testimony can tell health and social care professionals how it feels. This book presents personal accounts from people whose lives have been touched by the day-to-day realities of autism: people with autism, professionals who interact with them, their parents and their siblings. The stories are mostly told 'straight', with brief introductory comments and a few reflections at the end of each chapter. As Autism Programme Leader at the University of Cumbria for the past 13.
