Women and Girls with Autism Spectrum Disorder: Understanding Life Experiences from Early Childhood to Old Age

por Sarah Hendrickx

The difference that being female makes to the diagnosis, life and experiences of a person with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has largely gone unresearched and unreported until recently. In this book Sarah Hendrickx has collected both academic research and personal stories about girls and women on the autism spectrum to present a picture of their feelings, thoughts and experiences at each stage of their lives.Outlining how autism presents differently and can hide itself in females and what the likely impact will be for them throughout their lifespan, the book looks at how females with ASD experience diagnosis, childhood, education, adolescence, friendships, sexuality, employment, pregnancy and parenting, and aging. It will provide invaluable guidance for the professionals who support these girls and women and it will offer women with autism a guiding light in interpreting and understanding their own life experiences through the experiences of others.

Autism in Heels: The Untold Story of a Female Life on the Spectrum

por Jennifer Cook O'Toole

The face of autism is changing. And more often than we realize, that face is wearing lipstick.

Autism in Heels, an intimate memoir, reveals the woman inside one of autism’s most prominent figures, Jennifer O'Toole. At the age of thirty-five, Jennifer was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, and for the first time in her life, things made sense. Now, Jennifer exposes the constant struggle between carefully crafted persona and authentic existence, editing the autism script with wit, candor, passion, and power. Her journey is one of reverse-self-discovery not only as an Aspie but--more importantly--as a thoroughly modern woman.

Beyond being a memoir, Autism in Heels is a love letter to all women. It’s a conversation starter. A game changer. And a firsthand account of what it is to walk in Jennifer's shoes (especially those iconic red stilettos).

Whether it's bad perms or body image, sexuality or self-esteem, Jennifer's is as much a human journey as one on the spectrum. Because autism "looks a bit different in pink," most girls and women who fit the profile are not identified, facing years of avoidable anxiety, eating disorders, volatile relationships, self-harm, and stunted independence. Jennifer has been there, too. Autism in Heels takes that message to the mainstream.

From her own struggles and self-discovery, she has built an empire of empowerment, inspiring women the world over to realize they aren't mistakes. They are misunderstood miracles.

Engaging Autism: Using the Floortime Approach to Help Children Relate, Communiate, and Think

por Stanley I. Greenspan

An essential guide to the highly recommended Floortime approach for treating children with any of the autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

From the renowned child psychiatrist who developed the groundbreaking Floortime approach for children with autism spectrum disorder, Engaging Autism is a clear, compassionate roadmap for parents. Unlike approaches that focus on changing specific behavior, Dr. Greenspan’s program promotes the building blocks of healthy emotional and behavioral development, showing that children with ASD do not have a fixed, limited potential, and may often join their peers to lead full, healthy lives. With practical advice for every scenario you may face with your autistic child at any age—including sensory craving, overactivity, avoidant behavior, eating, toilet training, developing social skills, and more—Engaging Autism offers hope for families and redefines how we see children with ASD.

Praise for Engaging Autism

“This is a valuable book: valuable to parents who worry about their child, valuable to professionals who are consulted, valuable to the teams (parents and professionals) who are looking for interventions for this frightening disorder, and the DIR programs are exciting innovations and dramatically effective.” —T. Berry Brazelton, MD, Clinical Professor of Pediatrics Emeritus, Harvard Medical School

“Dr. Greenspan provides lots of practical methods for engaging children with autism in meaning interactions with parents and teachers.” —Temple Grandin, author of Thinking in Pictures

Autism Breakthrough: The Groundbreaking Method That Has Helped Families All Over the World

por Raun K. Kaufman

As a boy, Raun Kaufman was diagnosed by multiple experts as severely autistic, with an IQ below 30, and destined to spend his life in an institution. Years later, Raun graduated with a degree in Biomedical Ethics from Brown University and has become a passionate and articulate autism expert and educator with no trace of his former condition.
So what happened?

Thanks to The Son-Rise Program, a revolutionary method created by his parents, Raun experienced a full recovery from autism. (His story was recounted in the best-selling book Son-Rise: The Miracle Continues and in the award-winning NBC television movie Son-Rise: A Miracle of Love.) In Autism Breakthrough, Raun presents the ground-breaking principles behind the program that helped him and thousands of other families with special children. Autism, he explains, is frequently misunderstood as a behavioral disorder when, in fact, it is a social relational disorder. Raun explains what it feels like to be autistic and shows how and why The Son-Rise Program works.
A step-by-step guide with clear, practical strategies that readers can apply immediately—in some cases, parents see changes in their children in as little as one day—Autism Breakthrough makes it possible for these special children to defy their original often-very-limited prognoses. Parents and educators learn how to enable their children to create meaningful, caring relationships, vastly expand their communications, and to participate successfully in the world.

An important work of hope, science, and progress, Autism Breakthrough presents the powerful ideas and practical applications that have already changed the lives of families all over the world.

Autism: Ways to Understand Asperges Syndrome, ADHD, ADD and Special Needs

por J.D. Rockefeller



Autism is defined as neuro-developmental disorder that is characterized by repetitive and restricted behavior, verbal and non-verbal communication and impaired social interaction. Signs are normally noted during the first two years of their children being born. Signs normally develop gradually over time, though certain children with autism may reach their developmental achievements at normal pace and regress. The entire diagnostic criteria require that symptoms become evident during early childhood, normally within the first three years of birth.Although autism is a highly heritable condition, research studies indicate genetic and environmental factors to be the main causes. In certain cases, although rare, autism is largely associated with elements that cause birth defects. There is a lot of controversy that surrounds different other suggested environmental causes, for instance, the hypotheses on vaccine have been unproven. Autism has an effect on the way in which the brain processes information by changing the manner nerve cells and synapses organize and connect; how this happens is not really understood. It's among the three disorders of the autism spectrum, with the other two being Asperger syndrome and pervasive developmental disorder (PDD). Asperger syndrome defines a delay in language and cognitive development and PDD is not really specified but diagnosed when a complete set of criteria for Asperger syndrome or autism are not met.
Behavioral interventions or early speech can enable children with autism to gain self-care, communication, and social skills. While there isn't a known cure for the condition, there have been some reported cases about children who've recovered. A few children with autism get to live independently after they reach adulthood, although some go on to become successful. In recent times, a new autistic culture has become advent, with some people searching for a cure and some believing that the condition should be accepted and not treated like a disorder.
Based on data from 2010, the number of people with autism was estimated to be about 1-2 for every 1,000 people globally. The condition is also 4-5 times more likely to develop among boys than girls. An estimated 1.7 percent of children in the U.S. are diagnosed with the condition, and as of 2014 there had been a 30 percent increase from 1 in 88 in 2012. Autism among adults in the United Kingdom is 1.1 percent. The number of new cases has increased dramatically from the 1980s, largely because of changes in government-subsidized financial incentives and diagnostic practice for named diagnoses, but the question of whether the actual rates have risen remains unresolved.
