Autism Spectrum DisorderseBook - 2003
& Francis Publishing
Presenting examples that highlight the efficacy of the dimensional approach in autism spectrum research, this reference analyzes the three core symptom domains: social, communication, and repetitive/compulsive behavior, to determine the neurobiology, pathophysiology and treatment of specific autistic components and improve assessment and intervention regimens for a wide range of pervasive developmental disorders.
Including clinical, functional, and neuroanatomical data, this volume integrates the latest science on the neurobiology of autism to help make sense of the spectrum of autism disorders. Hollander edits 21 chapters by autism clinicians and researchers. Topics include diagnosis and epidemiology, early identification and assessment, immune dysfunction, autism and environmental toxins, treatment of seizures and movement disorders, and consumer advocacy and autism. Hollander is the director of the Seaver Autism Research Center. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
