BISAC: SCI089000

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) have become a major public health concern due to increasing numbers of patients with this diagnosis and the level of disability from which they suffer. ASD symptoms over the life span can be synthesized into communication difficulties, awkward social relationships, unusual stereotypes and preoccupations, emotion regulation difficulties, and an unfavorable self-concept. In this book, the authors present new research in the study of ASD including emotion regulation, social cognition and social adjustment in children with ASD; modified dialectical behavior therapy; coping strategies and QoL issues for mothers of children with high-functioning autism; distinct patterns of cortical coordinated activity in autism; identification and analysis of co-morbid psychopathology in ASD; cell therapies for ASD; criminal behavior and ASD; markers of immunologic dysfunction in the etiopathology of ASD; and diagnosing and living with Autism Spectrum Disorders in adulthood.
