‘A free spirit and strongly critical mind; an independent thinker, with encyclopedic knowledge of autism. Who else can write a multidisciplinary book on autism single-handedly?’
Laurent Mottron, Professor of Psychiatry and research Chair in Cognitive Neuroscience of Autism, University of Montreal.
‘An invaluable and comprehensive ‘go-to- guide for both my BPhil and Med in Autism, providing reliable information in an easily accessible way.’
Complicated concepts and terminology are clearly explained/made accessible. The 'boxes' provide good resources to use in class. Excellent glossary.
Excellent text for anyone wanting to learn more about autism. The LRC are ordering 5 copies in the first instance.
The book has been added to our Learner Experience module, where PGCE trainees consider to individual needs and challenges learners face in the classroom.

Detailed and compassionate. An excellent companion reosurce for those training to teach in SEN provision.
A really well structured and evidence based text. The use of examples and case studies in boxes adds to interest and accessibility.
This is a really helpful book which encompasses a lot of the key topics covered in the module.
