MEDIA REVIEWS
"Dr. Mesibov and colleagues demystify in clear simple language the confusing diagnostic nomenclature applied to the disorders on the autistic spectrum... Strengths of the book are its evenhandedness in a field where opinionated views are often presented as dogma, and its resolutely practical approach, for instance, giving addresses, phone numbers, or websites in text where particular resources are cited... Above all I appreciate the authors' successful attempt at clarifying the major issues that befuddle both parents and professionals who deal with these children, adolescents, and adults."
(Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology (March 2002)
"The recognition that people with Asperger Syndrome differ from each other and have an individual profile of impairments and needs is a relatively recent one in professional circles. Less has been written about psychological assessment and much less has been written about intervention. This book's attention to both will be welcomed by parents and sufferers, as well as professionals."
(Digby Tantam in Contemporary Psychology, 48:3 (2003)
