Autism : a very short introduction by Uta Frith( )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is autism and Asperger syndrome? How early can autism be recognized? What causes autism? Is it a genetic disorder, or due to some unknown environmental hazard? Are we facing an autism epidemic? What are the main symptoms, and how does it relate to Asperger syndrome? Are we all a little bit autistic? Everyone has heard of autism, but the disorder itself is little understood. It has captured the public imagination through films and novels portraying individuals with baffling combinations of disability and extraordinary talent, and yet the reality is that it often places a heavy burden on sufferers and their families. This volume offers a clear statement on what is currently known about autism and Asperger syndrome. Explaining the vast array of different conditions that hide behind these two labels, and looking at symptoms from the full spectrum of autistic disorders, it explores the possible causes for the apparent rise in autism and also evaluates the links with neuroscience, psychology, brain development, genetics, and environmental causes including MMR (Measles, Mumps, & Rubella vaccine) and Thimerosal. It also explores the psychology behind social impairment and savantism, and sheds light on what it is like to live inside the mind of the sufferer

The learning brain : lessons for education by Sarah-Jayne Blakemore( Book )

29 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Forced learning, or "hot-housing", of infants has become increasingly popular in recent years - but does it work? The plasticity of the adolescent and adult brain is becoming acknowledged by brain scientists. What does this say about lifelong learning? In this groundbreaking book, two scientists take stock of what is now known about how and when the brain learns, and consider its implications for educational policy and practice." "This landmark book will be of interest to students of psychology and education, teachers, psychologists, educational policy makers, and parents."--BOOK JACKET
Cognitive processes in spelling by Uta Frith( Book )

18 editions published between 1980 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to encourage a more serious study of spelling by discussing it as both a skill and a problem and by highlighting some previously ill-understood processes involved in learning to spell. The 22 chapters are arranged under the following eight categories: spelling instruction and spelling reform, spelling and language, spelling and word recognition, spelling strategies, spelling errors, spelling and development, spelling and language disorders, and spelling and dyslexia. Specific topics discussed in the chapters include: linguistic information in spelling, orthographic awareness, American black English and spelling, visual factors in spelling, spelling errors in handwriting, the development of orthographic images, spontaneous spelling by language disordered children, lexical and nonlexical processing of spelling in dyslexia, and unexpected spelling problems.

Autism and Asperger syndrome by Fo li si( Book )

32 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of autism contains many puzzles, but none more tantalizing than the problem of the eccentric individual who appears to be both intellectually gifted and mentally handicapped and who finds it difficult to deal with everyday social interaction and communication. Such individuals are increasingly recognized as suffering from Asperger Syndrome. The argument presented in this book is that they suffer from a form of autism, but that they can compensate for this handicap to a remarkable degree. In this volume the foremost experts in the field discuss the diagnostic criteria of the syndrome, richly illustrated with examples from their clinical practices. Clinical accounts are balanced with personal accounts and some as yet preliminary research data. Asperger's classic paper is translated and annotated. The insights of this pioneer of autism have been unjustly neglected but reflect a very modern awareness of the many forms of autism and the wide range of individual differences in the men and women who suffer from this disorder. Asperger Syndrome individuals with their intellectual and linguistic ability and their desire for social adaptation are extremely vulnerable
Some perceptual prerequisites for reading by Uta Frith( Book )

9 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The two chapters of this monograph deal with the issue of the existence of a perceptual grammar that influences reading proficiency, particularly initial reading proficiency. The first chapter indicates the importance of studying reading and writing in terms of readers' and writers' knowledge of visuo-spatial processing rules. It discusses research into the processing of single shapes, the processing of arrays of shapes, and the production of shapes, and it suggests some readily testable hypotheses relating to the grammar of two-dimensional space. The suggested hypotheses deal with five areas: (1) mirror image confusions and writing reversals, (2) internal (mind's eye) scanning, (3) differences between production and recognition of graphic symbols, (4) readers' use of Cartesian spatial rules, and (5) low versus high skills. The second chapter describes Lila Ghent Braine's work indicating that children have a concept of "right-side-up" different from that of adults and discusses evidence that this concept contributes to children's rotation errors in copying symbols. It also discusses factors that contribute to children's mirror image confusions, outlines some practical implications, and offers hypotheses about reasons for the persisting orientation errors of children who have difficulty learning to read.

Autism in history : the case of Hugh Blair of Borgue by R. A Houston( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This case study is the result of a unique collaboration between a social historian and a cognitive scientist. It examines the enigmatic case of Hugh Blair, an eighteenth century Scottish 'laird' or landowner, whose arranged marriage was annulled on the grounds of his mental incapacity. Through an in-depth study of the evidence surrounding the case, the authors conclude that Blair, who was classed at the time as a 'fool', was in fact autistic."--Jacket

Psykologiske forklaringer på, hvad der sker i det autistiske sind
Autism and talent by Francesca Happé( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and Italian and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Autism spectrum conditions affect as many as one in a hundred people. One of the most startling aspects of this social-communication disorder is the high rate of special, or savant, skills. This book explores the puzzle of talent and its close association with autism. Expert contributors from many areas of both science and the arts describe the latest research - using brain scanning, experimental tasks, twin studies, and case histories of extraordinary savants." "It considers many of the puzzling questions the relationship between autism and talent raises: Do similar genetic effects predispose for talent and for autism? What is the role of obsessive practice? Could we all become savants? What is special in the brains of people with savant skills? Is detail-focus at the root of talent in ASD and non-ASD individuals? How can talents best be fostered in children and adults with social and communication difficulties?" "With contributions from some of the leading authorities in the world, the book tries to unravel the mystery of savant skills in autism, as well as reflecting on the very different way that people with autism (with or without talent) see and understand the world."--BOOK JACKET

L'autismo : spiegazione di un enigma by Uta Frith( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in Italian and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Li hanno chiamati bambini pesce, bambini della luna, tanto appaiono misteriosi: i bambini autistici hanno eretto un muro impenetrabile tra se stessi e il mondo che li circonda. Uta Frith riprende le fila del suo indiscusso e fondamentale studio sull'autismo infantile e delinea i più recenti sviluppi della ricerca neuropsicologica e neurologica sul disturbo. <<Questa storia del viaggio della scienza verso la comprensione dell'autismo comprende idee romantiche e rivela reazioni emotive incredibilmente forti che io ho da tempo accettato come una componente del fascino che provo studiando l'autismo. Comprende anche alcuni fatti nudi e crudi provenienti dalla neuroscienza cognitiva. Credo che combinare i due opposti, la scienza rigorosa e le idee romantiche, l'obiettività e la passione, non sia impossibile, e l'enigma dell'autismo me ne ha dato la prova>>. (editore)
