Product Overview

The concept of a single condition known as 'autism' is quickly becoming outdated, and is now understood to be an umbrella term for a wide variety of predominantly genetic conditions. This can be confusing for parents of children who have been diagnosed as having an 'autism spectrum disorder'.

A-Z of Genetic Factors in Autism provides parents and carers with a complete overview of the main genetic conditions associated with autism, including those linked to cardiovascular issues, neurodevelopmental delay, immune dysfunction, growth differences gastrointestinal imbalances and seizures. Kenneth Aitken demystifies the umbrella term 'autism' by alphabetically listing these conditions along with information about how commonly they occur, their causes, signs and symptioms, and, for many, appropriate methods of treatment and management. Information on support groups and sources of further information are aslo included to help parents obtain any additional support they need, and keep up to date with new developments in research and practice.

This is a must-have book for any parent or carer who feels confused by their child's diagnosis, or who seeks a better understanding of the many genetic conditions associated with autism.
