Medical Aspects of Autism and Asperger Syndrome
A Guide for Parents and Professionals
People with autism are at a higher risk of having additional medical conditions, so increased care should be taken to ensure any other needs are detected early and effectively managed. This book is the perfect aid for doing so, providing detailed information on the range of possible further conditions, including epilepsy, eating disorders or genetic conditions.
Written for both parents and practitioners, including students, it shows how these medical conditions can be identified, and explains the range of possible treatments that are available that may improve the quality of life of the affected person.
