Summary
Autism - The Search for Coherence takes a multidisciplinary approach to autism, its causes and treatments, bringing together contributors from different fields - psychology, medicine, education, biology - from around the world. The very latest scientific and clinical research is presented and discussed by experts, and questions such as the structure of thought and the nature of autism are analysed. Parents and teachers describe practical strategies which have proved successful and give their views of the treatments currently available. Autism - The Search for Coherence shares the knowledge accumulated by all fields studying autism to provide a greater coherence to our understanding of it. It is a significant contribution to the literature, and will be welcomed by all those working with autistic people
