This fun and inspiring step-by-step program provides the full set of tools for developing social understanding in children with Asperger Syndrome (AS) through drama.

An Asperger Dictionary of Everyday Expressions, 2nd Edition. Ian Stuart-Hamilton, $31.95

The Asperger Plus Child: How to Identify and Help Children with Asperger Syndrome and Seven Common Co-Existing Conditions. George Lynn & Joanne Barrie Lynn, $28.95

The Asperger Plus Child helps parents, educators and caregivers to understand the Asperger child who has other conditions including Bipolar Disorder, Nonverbal Learning Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder. Written for parents, teachers, counselors, and medical professionals, The Asperger Plus Child offers insights including:

  • Why it is important to understand the real difference between autism and Asperger Syndrome
  • How you can tell if a child has AS or ADD and why the distinction will become more important as the child grows through his teen years
  • What a child with AS who also has a nonverbal learning disability looks like compared to a child with AS without an NLD

Though each child is as different as a fingerprint, there are shared patterns as well as important differences. The Asperger Plus Child presents a commonsense, interesting, and understandable description of these essential distinctions.

Asperger Syndrome and Alcohol: Drinking to Cope? Matthew Tinsley & Sarah Hendrickx, $26.95

Asperger Syndrome and Alcohol exposes the unexplored problem of people with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) using alcohol as a coping mechanism to deal with everyday life. Alcohol can relieve the anxiety of social situations and make those with ASDs feel as though they can fit in. Ultimately, however, reliance on alcohol can lead the user down a path of self-destruction and exacerbate existing problems.

The authors provide an overview of ASDs and of alcohol abuse, and explore current knowledge about where the two overlap. This inspiring book on an under-researched area will be of interest to professionals working with people with ASDs, as well as individuals with ASDs who may be dealing with alcohol or substance misuse, and their families.

  • Expanded coverage of evidence-based assessment and treatment, including two chapters on behavioral interventions.
  • Addresses challenges in the transition to new diagnostic criteria for autism spectrum disorder in DSM-5.
  • Chapters on neuropsychological advances, the transition to higher education, and forensic issues.

Asperger Syndrome in Adulthood: a Comprehensive Guide for Clinicians. Kevin Stoddart, Lillian Burke & Robert King, $34.00

A thorough overview of Asperger syndrome for mental health professionals.

Despite the dramatic proliferation of research, clinical perspectives, and first-person accounts of Asperger Syndrome (AS) in the last 15 years, much of this information has focused on the application of the diagnosis to children. This book addresses Asperger Syndrome as it manifests in adults. It integrates research and clinical experience to provide mental health professionals with a comprehensive discussion of AS in adulthood, covering issues of diagnosis as well as co-morbid psychiatric conditions, psychosocial issues, and various types of interventions — from psychotherapy to psychopharmacology. It also discusses basic diagnostic criteria, controversies about the disorder, and possible interventions and treatments for dealing with the disorder.

Asperger's Children: Psychodynamics, Aetiology, Diagnosis, and Treatment. Robin Holloway, $63.50

The DSM-5 (2013) classifies all autism-related disorders, including Asperger’s, under the heading “autism spectrum disorder.” This book argues that this lumping together is unhelpful for clinicians. Instead, finer diagnostic distinctions are helpful to clinicians who treat children with Asperger’s.

This book spells out in detail the psychodynamics the author has repeatedly uncovered in Asperger’s children, adolescents, and adults, and explores the central factors in the aetiology of Asperger’s Disorder. There is a section suggesting how Asperger’s can be adequately diagnosed from “the outside” (using external descriptive features) and more importantly from “the inside” (based on internal psychodynamic processes). Finally, there is a section outlining psychodynamic treatment approaches to Asperger’s children, based on their psychodynamics and on which type of Asperger’s is present.

The book includes numerous case illustrations to help the reader appreciate the central psychodynamics that are regularly observed in Asperger’s children, namely splitting of the self into victim and bully aspects, and projective identification into remote objects. On the basis of their psychodynamics, and especially which aspect of their split self is predominant, three different types of Asperger’s are outlined which require different treatment approaches.

Asperger’s Syndrome — That Explains Everything: Strategies for Education, Life, and Just About Everything Else. Stephen Bradshaw, $34.95

Students with Asperger's syndrome frequently find the school environment challenging, despite often having a high level of academic ability, because their unique social and sensory difficulties are not fully understood or accommodated. This book clearly explains proven and practical approaches in education and care that will enable young people with AS in primary and secondary education to thrive. The author uses anecdotes from his extensive teaching experience to illustrate potential problem areas and put forward solutions. There are useful strategies for dealing with issues relating to anxiety, communication, social rules, relationships and classroom behaviour. Accounts from parents and young people with AS who have benefited from the approaches described in the book are also included.

This book is a comprehensive and accessible resource for teachers, caregivers, and professionals working with young people with AS, equipping them with the insight to help AS pupils succeed, not only in school, but in the wider world.


Attacking Anxiety: a Step-by-Step Guide to an Engaging Approach to Treating Anxiety and Phobias in Children with Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities. Karen Levine & Naomi Chedd, $25.95

Drawing on the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), this book sets out a clear, enjoyable, step-by-step approach for addressing the sorts of anxieties, fears and phobias that are so common in children and teens with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and related challenges.

Using this easy-to-follow model, parents and professionals will have the tools they need to help children and teens cope with and sometimes overcome anxieties caused by everyday occurrences.

The model can be adapted to suit almost any anxiety or phobia and is ideal for use at home, at school and in clinical settings where it can be integrated into a variety of treatment approaches and styles. This book is an excellent resource for successfully alleviating many of the anxieties and phobias that interfere with life enjoyment, not only for the child but for the entire family.

Autism and the Family: Understanding and Supporting Siblings. Kate Fiske, $45.95

Ready-to-implement resources and approaches for effective professional care in school and clinical settings.

The reverberations of autism spectrum disorders among parents and siblings can be complex. Parents may grapple with the impact of their child's initial diagnosis, wrestle with the tension between their professional ambitions and family obligations, and labor to maintain a healthy union with their partners. Brothers and sisters may be given less attention, asked to assume a more adult role than they feel ready for, or strive for meaningful connection and communication with their sibling and parents. Although the energy of clinicians, teachers, and other professionals working with individuals with autism spectrum disorder is often focused intensively on the child who is diagnosed, the practitioner can also be an invaluable resource for the child's family.

Drawing upon clinical research and firsthand family interviews, this book helps clinicians understand the experiences of parents and siblings of a child with ASD from the time of diagnosis through adulthood. It provides clear recommendations for sensitive, informed professional support. Step-by-step in each chapter, Fiske elucidates such vital subjects as:

  • Understanding the experience of diagnosis
  • Recognizing patterns of parent stress over time
  • Appreciating and navigating the effects of ASD on relationships between parents
  • Involving and providing support for siblings
  • Integrating grandparents and other extended family in care and treatment
  • Understanding a family's culture
  • Identifying and developing effective coping strategies
  • Building a strong rapport with parents and family
  • Guiding parents in the treatment of autism

And many more, including key takeaways for assisting families in managing feelings of grief and guilt, navigating support options, treatment resources, and related financial concerns, and calibrating the division of labor in the home.

Autism and the Family supplies all the foundations necessary for professionals to understand the full impact of ASD on the child, siblings, and parents and cultivate an empathic, supportive approach to treatment for the entire family.

CBT for Children & Adolescents with High-Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorders. Edited by Angela Scarpa, Susan Williams White & Tony Attwood, $42.95

This book helps clinicians harness the benefits of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for children and adolescents with high-functioning autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Leading treatment developers describe promising approaches for treating common challenges faced by young people with ASD — anxiety and behavior problems, social competence issues, and adolescent concerns around sexuality and intimacy. Chapters present session-by-session overviews of each intervention program, review its evidence base, and address practical considerations in treatment. The book also discusses general issues in adapting CBT for this population and provides a helpful framework for assessment and case conceptualization informed by DSM-5.


Comic Strip Conversations: Colorful, Illustrated Interactions with Students with Autism and Related Disorders. Carol Gray, $12.95

Carol Gray combines stick-figures with "conversation symbols" to illustrate what people say and think during conversations. Showing what people are thinking reinforces that others have independent thoughts — a concept spectrum children don't intuitively understand. Children can also recognize that, although people say one thing, they may think something quite different — another concept foreign to "concrete-thinking" children. Children can draw their own "comic strips" to show what they are thinking and feeling about events or people. Different colors can represent different states of mind. These deceptively simple comic strips can reveal as well as convey quite a lot of substantive information.

The language that professionals choose to use can have a long-term impact on autistic people. This book provides easy-to-implement suggestions to guarantee effective and sensitive communication. It explains everything from person-first language through to the use of specific, rather than open-ended, questions, and a focus on taking the individual's lead with their preferred language and terminology is central to the book.

The ECLIPSE Model: Teaching Self-Regulation, Executive Function, Attribution, and Sensory Awareness to Students with Asperger Syndrome, High-Functioning Autism, and Related Disorders. Sherry Moyer, $34.95

The process of attributing or assessing our circumstances is a neglected area for young people with Asperger Syndrome and other pervasive developmental disabilities, yet it poses severe challenges for them. The ECLIPSE Model targets the global skills needed to improve social competence, such as executive functioning, theory of mind, causal attribution, processing speed, and working memory. Without effective use of these skills on a regular basis, development of other areas of functioning, such as academic, adaptive or activities of daily living, and social and vocational skills will be challenged. This curriculum provides step-by-step lessons for teaching these vital skills in a way that is motivating to young people.

Full of effective and innovative strategies, the book covers areas such as meltdowns, forming friendships, literal thinking and speaking, and the overwhelming influence of sensory sensitivities. Activities to help explain the child's behaviour to other students are also included which fosters understanding and acceptance. A 'Home Link' section adds vital information about how to work with parents and other caregivers to create safe, loving and fun environments for the child at home and at school.

Family Therapy and the Autism Spectrum: Autism Conversations in Narrative Practice. Marilyn Monteiro, $42.95

The autism spectrum presents a range of communication, social, and sensory differences that are challenging for clinicians to address. Family Therapy and the Autism Spectrum provides a guide to conceptualizing those differences and ways to discuss them with clients and their families. Readers are provided with narrative examples illustrating the application of key concepts introduced in the text. These case examples address issues that range across the life cycle, from families with young children to ones with teens who are emerging as adults. Using the techniques learned in this book, clinicians will be able to guide families towards their positive autism narrative.

This book also features a visual framework to organize the compelling narrative of each person’s autism spectrum pattern of developmental differences or brain style. Using this visual framework and the corresponding descriptive language, clinicians and families can work together to create their "autism conversations." The conversations lead to the transformative experiences of developing competencies, resiliency, and advocacy for individuals and their families. The conversations also lead individuals with spectrum differences to use empowering language, supporting their ability to develop self-advocacy and self-determination skills.

Self-advocacy plays a vital role in nearly every aspect of life for individuals on the spectrum, in school, at home, in the community, and at work.

Making Sense of Children's Thinking and Behavior: a Step-by-Step Tool for Understanding Children with NLD, Asperger's, HFA, PDD-NOS, and other Neurological Differences. Leslie Holzhauser-Peters & Leslie True, $25.95

Making Sense of Children's Thinking and Behavior offers parents and professionals a tool for understanding children with neurological differences. These children have an atypical view of the world, unique to their particular disability, which can make their behaviour confusing and at times challenging. Each child therefore requires individualized accommodations in understanding and responding to them.

The Systematic Tool for Analysing Thinking (STAT) offers such a system. It provides a step-by-step method for forming a hypothesis about a child's behavior, by laying bare the thinking behind it. It then suggests appropriate ways of responding, in order to try and both explain and eventually remedy the difficult behavior.

Martian in the Playground: Understanding the Schoolchild with Asperger's Syndrome, Revised Edition. Clare Sainsbury, $48.95

This award winning book illuminates what it means to be a person who has Asperger’s Syndrome by providing a window into a unique and particular world. Drawing on her own experience of schooling, and of a network of friends and correspondents who share her way of thinking and responding, Clare Sainsbury reminds us of the potential for harm education holds for those who do not "fit in".

This book holds insights that take us beyond the standard guidance on how to manage autistic spectrum disorder. It challenges the way we might handle obsessive behavior. It invites us to celebrate the pure passion of the intellect, which such obsessions can represent, and to recognize the delight which can be experienced by children who love to collect. It reminds us that many of the autistic mannerisms we might try to suppress actually help the child to think. This revised edition includes an additional introduction and extensive summary of research in the field of Asperger’s Syndrome, both by Tony Attwood.

QUEST Program 1: Social Skills Curriculum for Elementary School Students with Autism.  JoEllen Cumpata & Susan Fell, $34.50

The QUEST Program 1 was developed to address the needs of elementary students with social skills and pragmatic language weaknesses. Because these children benefit from regular instruction and practice, the program uses an intensive proactive approach to teach social skills by combining written instruction with games, experiential stories, and role play, which results in discussion, friendly feedback from peers, and real world experience. Even when provided with an inclusive education in a general education setting, these students do not typically interpret social cues, nuances and rules of interaction in the same way as their peers, which is the reason the program maximizes generalization of skills both in and outside the classroom. The goals of the program are to help students gain a better understanding of human behavior and interaction and to provide opportunities to become familiar and comfortable with the social skills and pragmatic language necessary to be successful at school and in the community.

QUEST Program 2: Social Skills Curriculum for Elementary School Students with Autism.  JoEllen Cumpata & Susan Fell, $34.50

Why start a social skills program? The question is not why, but why not? With inclusive education becoming the norm in schools nationwide, teachers often struggle to address students non-academic needs, but teachers need ready-to-use lessons that won't interfere with their curriculum. Quest Program 2 is a social skills program created to help middle school students with autism who struggle with social skills and pragmatic language.

Developed by a school social worker and speech language pathologist, the program uses an intensive, proactive approach to teaching social skills, combining written instruction with games, activities, and student interaction. Six helpful units: School Survival Basics, Understanding and Managing Emotions, Communication Skills, Making Friends and Interacting with Peers, Personal Safety, Vocational Readiness can be implemented either chronologically or on their own.


Reframe Your Thinking Around Autism: How the Polyvagal Theory and Brain Plasticity Help Us Make Sense of Autism. Holly Bridges, $19.95

This is the first book to explain the Polyvagal Theory as it applies to autism in simple terms for parents and professionals. Incorporating Dr Anat Baniel's work in brain plasticity, it presents a new way of understanding autism and supporting children on the spectrum with strategies to strengthen the mind-body connection. Outlining a new, optimistic way to understand autism, this concise and accessible book offers practical ideas to help children on the spectrum grow.

The Polyvagal Theory suggests autism is a learnt response by the body — a result of the child being in a prolonged state of 'fight or flight' while their nervous system is still developing. This book explains the theory in simple terms and incorporates recent developments in brain plasticity research (the capacity of the brain to change throughout life) to give parents and professionals the tools to strengthen the child's brain-body connection and lessen the social and emotional impact of autism.

Special Considerations for Students with High-Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder: a Guide for School Administrators. Diane Adreon & Brenda Smith Myles, $30.95

School administrators play a key role in creating a mind-set within their school district, region, or school as to how school personnel approach various challenges they may encounter when working with students and families. In many instances, a school administrator can provide certain accommodations for students with disabilities, as well as guide decisions regarding how teachers address behavioral challenges. The purpose of this book is to provide school administrators with useful and practical suggestions and strategies that can increase student achievement, engagement, positive behavior, and social skills for high-functioning students on the spectrum (HF-ASD); help reduce educator stress and frustration; and increase positive interactions between families and school personnel so that the school day is more successful for all parties.

  • Need cues for how and when to transition from an activity or place to the next & much more

Starting from the premise that no two individuals with AS are the same, Hudson and Myles provide a global perspective of how the core characteristics of AS may appear separately and/or simultaneously, and how they may manifest themselves in a variety of situations.

Teaching Children with Autism to Mind-Read: a Practical Guide for Teachers and Parents. Patricia Howlin, Simon Baron-Cohen, Julie Hadwin, $95.99

The difficulties experienced by children with autism and related conditions in inferring the thoughts, beliefs, desires and intentions of others are well documented in numerous studies. It now seems that these deficits underlie many of the social and communication problems that are characteristic of autism. Teaching Children with Autism to Mind-Read explores the relationship of "theory of mind" deficits to other areas of children's functioning and describes existing experimental work that has attempted to enhance the skills associated with understanding others' minds. Drawing on their own intervention programme, and providing detailed information about the teaching materials and strategies they use, the authors provide practical guidelines for helping children with autism spectrum conditions to improve their understanding of beliefs, emotions and pretence. The authors tackle specific problematic issues including:

  • how to interpret facial expressions
  • how to recognise feelings of anger, sadness, fear and happiness
  • how feelings are affected by what happens and what is expected to happen
  • how to see things from another person's perspective
  • how to understand another person's knowledge and beliefs

This easy-to-follow graded teaching guide is of particular relevance to special needs teachers, educational and clinical psychologists, speech and language therapists, and carers of children with autism spectrum conditions.

From Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale characters to Lewis Carroll's Wonderland and Emily Dickinson's poetic imagery, the writings and lives of some of the world's most celebrated authors indicate signs of autism and Asperger's Syndrome.

The book provides an overview of ASD and common threads in autistic writing followed by an illuminating exploration of how these threads are evident in the literature of both well-known and lesser known authors.
