Reviews

".....clearly written discussions of diagnosis, phenomenology, and interventions in autistic spectrum disorders..........Fascinating accounts of HFA and AS give some access to the unusual subjective worlds of people affected by these disorders."
(A Journal of Reviews and Commentary in Mental Health, (March 1999)
"This is a book that should be in medical libraries, and on the shelves of many child and adolescent psychiatrics. "
(Canadian Child Psychiatry Review, 10:3 (2001)
