Description

Completely revised and updated, this book focuses on sensory perceptual problems as identified by individuals on the autism spectrum.

Despite frequently being identified by individuals with autism as one of the main problems they face, sensory perceptual issues are still often overlooked by professionals. The author covers the sensory perceptual experiences and sensitivities seen in autism spectrum conditions, and the cognitive differences caused by them. She considers assessment and intervention, and makes practical recommendations for selecting appropriate methods and techniques to eliminate sensory perceptual problems and enhance individual strengths.

Brought up-to-date with current research and the latest thinking on autism, this book enables teachers, parents, professionals and individuals with autism fully to understand and address the problematic aspects of the sensory perceptual differences of people with autism spectrum conditions.

Reviews

'With the expertise of a lifetime in the field, Dr Olga Bogdashina weaves the latest research, decades of practice and powerful intellect into a tapestry of understanding for improving assessment and education with easy-to-implement practical solutions for addressing sensory issues. A must-read for educators, parents, clinicians, scientists and anyone wishing to deepen their understanding of what it means to have autism.'
- Stephen Mark Shore, Ed.D., Clinical Assistant Professor of Special Education, Adelphi University

'The author is a driving force behind the UK branch of the International Autism Institute and is Associate Consultant (Autism) to the European Institute of Child Education and Psychology...this book is very researched and, at the same time, readable. The section on recommendations provides some very interesting insights and also questions some established intervention protocols by explaining situations in which they may not be effective. This book will be of interest to those working or living with autistic people or with Asperger Syndrome seeking practical methods and techniques to eliminate sensory perceptual problems and enhance individual strengths.'
