Not all children with these problems respond to atypical antipsychotic medications; therefore, we investigated whether peripheral blood gene expression before treatment with risperidone, an atypical antipsychotic, was associated with improvements in severe behavioral disturbances 8 weeks following risperidone treatment in 42 ASD subjects (age 11. ±51.

Autism is a devastating disorder. Although it was once thought to be rare, its numbers are skyrocketing today.

The need for this enlightening and eminently practical book has never been greater. Written to help the nonspecialist provide state-of-the-art care, this remarkable volume synthesizes the most recent research on the etiology, assessment, and treatment of autism spectrum disorders for practitioners. It also reviews the scientific literature and practical implications for clinical care and, in this era of evidence-based medicine, provides empirically supported guidelines for evaluation and treatment, highlighting the role of various professional disciplines.

Contributors are a veritable "who's who" of leaders and expert investigators from disciplines such as pediatrics, psychology, psychiatry, neurology, genetics, education, and early childhood development. Their work is divided into three parts: ? Part I offers a historical perspective that traces the major scientific advances, debates, and hypotheses that have informed clinical practice since autism was first described in 1943, including how to use these advances in everyday practice.? Part II presents a model of team building and cross-disciplinary collaboration that is the practice at the Medical Investigation of Neurodevelopmental Disorders (M.I.N.D.) Institute at the University of California-Davis, the institution with which most of the contributors are associated. Each chapter reviews the important theories, research findings, and scientific debates relevant to a particular discipline (psychiatry, psychology, pediatrics, and neurology), applying them to clinical care.? Part III discusses treatments, from nonmedical interventions to pharmacotherapy and alternative theories to cultural issues and professional-parent collaboration. Again using the M.I.N.D. Institute as a model, this section articulates the absolute necessity of stakeholder/parent perspectives and partnerships in understanding and working with the disorder -- coming full circle from just 10 to 15 years ago, when parents were seen as having an etiologic role in the onset of the disorder through nonempathic parenting styles.

Concluding with a resource appendix and an index, this densely informative volume shows us where science is actually being used to yield new understanding.

  • This book was required reading for an Autism course I'm taking. Although chalked with relevant information, much of it was very outdated (from 2003 when it was published.) It is in great need of a revised edition.

    Great basic information and detailed medical detail. Written in medical language and with the specialist in mind (not parents of ASD children.) Nevertheless, parents would find it an interesting peek behind the beginnings of one of the world's top Autism Research Clinics (the MIND institute.) Includes an interesting mini-biography on how and why the MIND was formed.

  • okay book more of a manual then for reading.

  • The book came exactly as it was described.

  • Like any text, mostly droll and frustratingly the same as I was studying 1980. All the money and effort and we are making very little progress in the field while identifying more and more ASD people.(sigh)

  • This book provides an excellent, coherant and up-to-date summary of the research in autism. There are chapters relating to diagnosis, etiology, treatment and working with families that truly synthesis the plethora of information available. These researchers have managed to use language that is useful to parents and practitioners to help them sift through recent information. If you work with children who have autism spectrum disorders this book is a "must read".
