Description-

  • Every year, one out of every 100 children in the United States—or six out of every 1,000 young people worldwide—is diagnosed with autism. Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are a neurologically based family of developmental disorders that can impact people's communication and social skills. ASD includes both autism and Asperger syndrome.

    Cutting-edge research and scientific studies are probing into the genetic foundation of ASD. Quoting researcher Stephen Scherer about a recent study, USA TODAY, the Nation's No. 1 Newspaper, notes that, "most individuals with autism are probably genetically quite unique."

    In this book, you'll find out what it's like to have ASD through reading case studies of people living with the condition. You'll also learn about the impact of the disorders on families. In addition, you'll receive solid information about symptoms, treatment, and research and get the facts you need about how you, your friends, and your family can cope effectively with ASD.

    June 1, 2011

    Gr 8 Up-These books serve as solid report fodder, with some interesting sidelights from the USA Today team. Each volume has an introduction, a description of the condition, chapters on what it is like to live with it, and material on research and treatments. A healthy smattering of statistics and personal stories appear throughout, as well as some fictionalized scenarios that are a bit less helpful. The volumes are colorful with shaded sidebars and a few well-chosen photos. Even though they are similar to other health series, such as the "Science of Health: Youth and Well-Being" (Mason Crest), these titles are not an exact match. Solid additions for libraries in need of fresh looks at these diseases and disorders.-Robin Henry, Wakeland High School, Frisco, TX

  • The Horn Book Guide

    "Each volume does a solid job in describing a particular health concern and its symptoms, explaining its impact on individuals (personal case studies are included) and society as a whole, and outlining various forms of treatment.Depression focuses specifically on teens dealing with that disorder. Tuberculosis is addressed as a contemporary, escalating concern. Unexceptional black-and-white photographs are included." —The Horn Book Guide
