The first book to address the increasingly urgent need for information about psychiatric problems in people with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), Mental Health Aspects of Autism and Asperger Syndrome systematically explains the emotional and psychological difficulties that are often encountered with ASDs. The author, an experienced psychiatrist specializing in autism, describes each of the conditions that are commonly seen in autistic children and adults, including schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, and tic disorders, and gives sound guidance on their early detection and treatment. Easy to use and authoritative, this book is an essential tool for use by both family and professionals.

There is clear evidence that people with ASDs are at an increased risk of developing a range of co-morbid conditions and this book, whose author is a child psychiatrist specializing in childrens and adults with ASDs, seeks to offer clear advice and guidance on early detection and treatment. The author recognizes that many problems such as mood swings, angry outbursts, depression and anxiety are often dismissed by professionals as part of the condition of autism and therefore go untreated. This book provides an overview of the wide range of behavioural problems and psychiatric disorders that may affect people with autism and Asperger syndrome and treatments that are available. It is a very comprehensive book and certainly the most informative I have found on the subject so far. I would strongly recommend this book.
