Autism Spectrum Disorder, or ASD, is the umbrella term used to describe a whole family of related conditions. Within this group, there is a subgroup of conditions known as PDD (NOS) – Pervasive Developmental Disorder (not otherwise specified) – which do not quite meet the diagnostic criteria of Autism or Asperger Syndrome.

Written specifically for parents, this fully-updated second edition sets out what it means for a child to be diagnosed with ASD, PDD (NOS), autism or Asperger Syndrome, and explains where parents should go from there. The authors describe the signs and symptoms of each condition, what a diagnosis means, how a child fits into the diagnostic terminology, and what the diagnostic procedures involve. Associated disorders such as Rett Syndrome, Childhood Disintegrative Disorder and OCD are reviewed, and the authors describe the various treatments, therapies, and educational approaches available. The book also includes new information on medication and on the evolving concept of diagnosis, as well as a list of frequently asked questions and new interviews with parents of children on the autism spectrum.

Accessible, informative, and supportive, this book is an essential guide for parents of children with an autism spectrum disorder.

Parents of the newly diagnosed may feel isolated and burdened; the new edition of Autism, Asperger Syndrome and Pervasive Developmental Disorder by Barbara Quinn and Anthony Malone offers answers, explanations, and – perhaps most importantly – a community of parents who’ve walked this same path…Throughout the book, with precise, supportive wording, the authors encourage parents to trust themselves, listen to their children, and relish the people their sons and daughters grow to be… The bulk of the book focuses on specific questions parents may have about their own child’s diagnosis. The authors begin with a discussion of normal development and the ways children might differ from this baseline… Using anecdotal examples, they do an excellent job illustrating the difference between children with a diagnosis and children who are simply slower than average.
