What Science Tells Us About Autism Spectrum Disorders (CHES)
This course is only for CHES practitioners.
This book was written by three highly qualified autism researcher experts. Because of the flood of ASD-related information available to practitioners and families, this book is unique because it shares evidence-based research and clinical experience. Topics include: possible causes of ASD, typical issues, exercise, sleep, GI issues, feeding problems and proven therapies. Excellent resource!
This is the book I have been waiting for--one I can recommend without reservation to parents of children newly diagnosed with autism. It is full of all the facts and practical information that families need to understand the causes of autism and get their child on the right treatment path. I wish this resource had existed when my daughter was diagnosed. If you’re going to buy one book about autism, this is the one! - Alison Singer, President, Autism Science Foundation
This highly readable and authoritative summary of the science of autism is a valuable resource for parents. The authors are leading experts who have the gift of science communication--a rare combination. The book is also a useful entry point for students and professionals new to the field. - Simon Baron-Cohen, FBA, FMedSci, Director, Autism Research Centre, Cambridge University, United Kingdom
Three of the field’s brightest scientists and most compassionate clinicians distill cutting-edge science in a clear, comprehensible way. - James C. McPartland, PhD, coauthor of A Parent's Guide to High-Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder, Second Edition
