Publication: Deerfield Beach, FL : Health Communications , 2015 . 264 p. ; 216 x 140mm Date: 2015

An accessible and often lighthearted account of an orthopeadic surgeon's and his daughter's journey toward understanding her Asperger's (today recognised as high functioning end of the autism spectrum) and the strategies and tools that they uncovered along the way for helping people with this condition manage the multitude of demands that everyday life entails. Whilst this is not a particularly scientific read, it is bound to spark a few ideas (or more) for people affected by this condition, as well as their supporters and significant others.

Mental health approaches to intellectual /developmental disabilty : by Fletcher, Robert J.

Publication: . 464 pages : 26 cm.

This book is exactly what it says in the title: "for trainers". It's an excellent resource for health professionals who are preparing presentations to colleagues of other disciplines or to NGOs, doctors etc It is current information and in accordance with the DSM5. Not recommended for the general public.

A look at autism through the spiritual lens instead of a clinical one. Very interesting concepts.

Literacy for visual learners : by Devine, Adele
