Autism Heroes ? Portraits of families meeting the challenge

Intimate, bold, and inspiring, Autism Heroes provides a compelling and sensitive account of the experiences of 38 families from different walks of life confronting the challenges of autism with courage, tenacity and love. With empathy and expertise gained from her three decades of leadership of The Help Group and commitment to children with special needs, Dr. Barbara Firestone engages the families in candid, powerful and deeply affecting conversations about their lives. Each family narrative is set against the backdrop of her insightful essays about dignity, hope, opportunity and love, which are fundamentally important to all families living with autism.
The families offer their experiences openly and honestly, sharing their challenges, triumphs, and hopes. Their candor helps demystify and destigmatize autism and embraces other parents just beginning or already on the journey. Their reflections chart the course through the many stages of coping with autism and seeking solutions for their children, and they offer a lifeline of support, insight and encouragement and hope.
Fully illustrated with stunning photographs by Joe Buissink, Autism Heroes is an invaluable resource for families as well as educators, clinicians, researchers and policy makers.

Autism in Childhood and Autistic Features in adults

This is the first collection of papers published in this country which spans work with autistic children and autistic features in adults. The links between the two groups make for fascinating reading and go some way to explain the widespread interest in the enigma of autism. Many of the adult patients described are less ill than autistic children whose development has ground to a halt at an early age, but at the core of their difficulties can be found autistic features remarkably similar to those of the more floridly disturbed children. This leads several writers to conclude that autistic features are to be found in many adults, some would say in all of us. The insights contained in these papers open up access to deep levels of the human psyche and have far-reaching clinical implications. 'This collection draws together papers which are central to today's psychoanalytic understanding of childhood autism and of autistic aspects of adult patients. Some of these papers are classics in the field while others describe more recent advances in understanding and technique.

Autistic Spectrum Disorders A Guide for Paediatricians in India

Awareness of autism has grown tremendously since it was first described by Dr. Leo Kanner in 1943. Despite many gains that have been made in more accurately understanding and describing the causes, course and treatment of the disorder, many myths and misconceptions about autism still prevail. In many countries of the world, most of the public?as well as many professionals?are still unaware of how it affects people, and how to best work with individuals with autism. These may include those in the medical, educational, and vocational fields. From among all the many professionals who come into contact with children, paediatricians are in the unique position to provide an early diagnosis of autism, since they are frequently the first point of professional contact for a parent. Despite their busy schedule, paediatricians are also in the best position to provide more than just a diagnosis of autism, and paediatricians in India have increasingly expressed interest in how to best direct parents about what to do next. In addition to some information on identifying features of autism, these pages carry answers to some of the questions paediatricians are commonly asked by parents, as well as some basic information on services and therapies available within India. We hope this information will prove useful in the ongoing effort to increase awareness of autism among the medical community in India.

Irish Families Under Stress ? Volume 6.(Planning for the future of Autistic Persons)

I am very glad to see that Professor Fitzgerald is continuing to carry out research on Irish families under stress. It is important that the causes and effects of stress on families continues to be researched, and that the outcomes of that research are published as in instrument for planners, including health planners, at national and local level. The challenges and demands placed on families in the 90's are varied and take on a totally different dimension when a family unit has cared for a member who is elderly or disabled. In this regard a family member with autism presents a particular challenge. The support provided by the health services, with a range of programmes of day care, home support, educational, and respite, is very much welcomed by the parents and siblings of the autistic child. Cognisance has to be taken of the care demand met by the family unit. Professor Fitzgerald's research on the stress associated with family care will be welcomed by those families and health care providers generally.

RECENT ADVANCES IN AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDERS - VOLUME II

There is no doubt that the technological and scientific progress of homosapiens has been hastened by persons with Autism Spectrum Disorders (Fitzgerald 2000 (a & b) 2004, 2005). Spikins in her chapter illustrates the Stone Age origins of autism with reference to the archaeological record and the Palaeolithic record. It is of critical importance to pay attention to the positive aspects of autism. The study of attitudes of people towards autism is of critical importance as the issue of a stigma is still very prevalent in all countries even more so in non-western countries. KarniVizer Niritetal describes the attitudes towards autism among Israeli Arab teachers of college students. They are particularly focused on inclusion. Interest in religious faith gave some mothers strength. Coulthard and myself demonstrated this also some years ago (Coulthard and Fitzgerald 1979, 1999). This study was also done on mothers of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

The Reason I Jump

Book invites you, his reader, to imagine a daily life in which your faculty of speech is taken away. Explaining that you?re hungry, or tired, or in pain, is now as beyond your powers as a chat with a friend. I?d like to push the thought-experiment a little further. Now imagine that after you lose your ability to communicate, the editor-in-residence who orders your thoughts walks out without notice. The chances are that you never knew this mind-editor existed but, now that he or she has gone, you realize too late how they allowed your mind to function for all these years. A dam-burst of ideas, memories, impulses and thoughts is cascading over you, unstoppably. Your editor controlled this flow, diverting the vast majority away, and recommending just a tiny number for your conscious consideration. But now you?re on your own.
