A Clinical Guide to Autism Spectrum Disorders
A Clinical Guide to Autistic Spectrum Disorders provides primary care health care providers and pediatricians the inclusive, yet succinct, material they need to immediately evaluate and support their patients. Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) have a wide and sometimes confusing presentation, and this text covers the recognition, evaluation, and multi-disciplinary approach to the management of ASD. Readers will benefit not only from the brief review of the biology and demographics of autism, but also from its common sense approach and practical suggestions for clinical settings. A companion website features the fully searchable text and printable patient handouts.
