Sensory Perceptual Issues in Autism and Asperger Syndrome

Different Sensory Experiences, Different Perceptual Worlds

In this book Olga Boghadashina describes a different perceptual world. She writes about people with autism for whom seeing, hearing, tasting, touching, the sense of balance and the sense in the joints can have a significance strikingly different from that of non-autistic people. In this book she highlights a different explanation for difficult - and for most people unpredictable behaviour and gives appropriate methods and techniques for assessment and comprehension of this behaviour.

Suitable for parents and everyone dealing with autistic people.

Exiting Nirvana: A Daughter`s Life with Autism

Clara Claiborne Park describes the story of her autistic daughter Jessy growing into adulthood. Her daughter has problems with language, normal social intercourse, is hypersensitive and suffers from obsessions. With the assistance of family, friends, and teachers Jessy achieves more than her parents could ever hope for. She is capable of performing a number of simple practical activities, becomes a talented artist and has sufficient control over her social handicap to function in a job. When the mother is asked if Jessy enjoys painting, she answers: 'It is not a matter of enjoying, but it is of vital importance for her to do something, to paint, to do chores in the house, to work.' The importance of being occupied, having something useful to do for children and people with autism is an important topic in this book.

Useful for everyone dealing with people with autism and is interested in reading from the perspective of a parent.
