A Strange World – Autism, Asperger's Syndrome and PDD-NOS: A Guide for Parents, Partners, Professional Carers, and People with ASDs

Martine F. Delfos Tony Attwood
3.9/5 (11 ratings)
A Strange World is an intriguing and comprehensive guide to autistic spectrum disorders presented from a new biopsychological perspective. Martine F. Delfos provides a strong theoretical analysis of the nature of autism and the problems it may cause. Illustrating her ideas with many real-life examples, Delfos offers practical advice from the perspectives of autistic people of all ages, and from parents and carers. Balancing theory and practice, she incorporates the findings of current research, and moves beyond, addressing issues such as differences between men and women with ASDs, and the question of what is 'normal'. A Strange World is both an accessible resource for parents and an important textbook for students and professionals.
