Autism. by Hillard, Stephane.;
Cover -- Title Page -- Copyright -- CONTENTS -- ADAM'S LAST FIRST DAY -- GET THE FACTS STRAIGHT -- DANIEL LOVES THE DRUMS -- WALKING FOR JULES -- HELPING ADAM PREPARE -- GLOSSARY -- INDEX -- Back Cover.Autism spectrum disorder, ASD, or autism is a mysterious disability. Doctors don't know what causes it, it's difficult to diagnose, there's no cure, and there's no universal treatment. Even though more people are diagnosed with autism today than ever before, it's difficult for many people to understand why people on the spectrum think and behave the way they do. This book serves as a guide to help teens understand the signs and symptoms of ASD, how it is diagnosed and treated, and how knowing someone with autism can change their lives. The more teens know about autism, the less mysterious it will seem.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.

Prepare to have your preconceptions challenged by this intelligent, moving, and gripping exploration of the controversy surrounding Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), an intensive intervention used to treat autism. Parents who want ABA for their children passionately believe that it is the best way to teach a child new skills and to help them function in mainstream society, but critics of ABA argue that it is dehumanizing and abusive to try to eliminate autistic behavior.9 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.

Autism : A Conversation with Jay Gargus. by Burton, Howard.;
Intro -- A Note on the Text -- Introduction -- The Conversation -- I. The Lure of Genetics -- II. Genetics 101 -- III. Towards Disease -- IV. Autism -- V. Pathways and Pleiotropy -- VI. Reasons for Optimism -- Continuing the Conversation.This book is based on an in-depth filmed conversation between Howard Burton and Jay Gargus, Professor of Physiology, Biophysics and Pediatrics and Director of the Center for Autism Research and Translation at UC Irvine. This wide-ranging conversation examines the recent explosion in our genetic understanding and its implications for the future of medicine, together with the importance of understanding the underlying molecular mechanisms in order to successfully treat a wide range of genetic disorders. Prof. Gargus focuses on autism, dispelling myths associated with the condition, advocating why a treatment should be actively pursued, and illustrating what we can learn from the recent breakthrough in cystic fibrosis research.This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, Machine Repair, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter. Howard Burton was the Founding Director of Canada's Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. He holds a PhD in theoretical physics and an MA in philosophy. This book is part of an expanding series of 100+ Ideas Roadshow conversations, each one presenting a wealth of candid insights from a leading expert in a focused yet informal setting to provide a uniquely accessible window into frontline research and scholarship that wouldn't otherwise be encountered through standard lectures and textbooks.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.
