There is a near hysteria over dramatic increases in autism prevalence at a time when we still don't know what causes the disorder and have no known cures. More and more money is being poured into autism research with conflicting research findings, none of which appear to be getting us closer to prevention or treatment. This book carefully examines the psychology, neuroscience, genetic, and medical research findings to date from autism research and provocatively suggests that what we've labeled "autism" is several different disorders, and the way forward for more effective research for prevention and treatment. Autism is a massive worldwide problem with increasing prevalence rates, now thought to be as high as 1 in 38 children (Korea) and 1 in 100 children (CDC- US) Autism is the 3rd most common developmental disability. 400,000 people in the US alone have autism Autism effects entire brain including communication, social behavior, reasoning and is lifelong There is no known cause and no cure Funding for Autism research quadrupled from 1995 to 2000 up to $45m, and the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee has recommended $1billion funding from 2010-2015

Challenging existing approaches to autism that limit, and sometimes damage, the individuals who attract and receive the label, this book questions the lazy prejudices and assumptions that can surround autism as a diagnosis in the 21st Century. Arguing that autism can only be understood through examining 'it' as a socially or culturally produced phenomenon, the authors offer a critique of the medical model that has produced a perpetually marginalising approach to autism, and explain the contradictions and difficulties inherent in

Jack also discusses ways he has overcome some of the negative attributes of his autism while embracing the parts

Ten autistic self-advocates share their experiences with alternative forms of communication such as rapid prompting method (RPM) and facilitated communication (FC), both highly controversial. Their narratives document the complexities that autistic individuals navigate--in both educational and community settings--when choosing to use approaches that utilize letter boards and keyboards. While the controversies remain--RPM requires further scientific study, and FC is subject to criticism about confirmation bias--these individuals share powerful stories in the context of aiming for disability rights.

Autism is a complex phenomenon that is both individual and social. Showing both robust similarities and intriguing differences across cultural contexts, the autism spectrum raises innumerable questions about self, subjectivity, and society in a globalized world. Yet it is often misrepresented as a problem of broken bodies and disordered brains. So, in 2015, a group of interdisciplinary scholars gathered in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for an intellectual experiment: a workshop that joined approaches from psychological anthropology to the South American tradition

This book explores the development of humanoid robots for helping children with autism develop social skills based on fieldwork in the UK and the USA. Robotic scientists propose that robots can therapeutically help children with autism because there is a “special” affinity between them and mechanical things. This idea is supported by autism experts that claim those with autism have a preference for things over other persons. Autism is also seen as a gendered condition, with men considered less social
