My brother has autism. My mother told me so. In case you’re not sure what that means, I’ll tell you what I know... So begins My Brother – Autism – And Me, one little boy’s story about the good and some not so good times of life in his family with his brother who has autism. With this picture book bound to delight children and educate adults, Author Aisha Pope introduces readers to the developmental delay, autism, through the eyes of a sibling. In the pages of My Brother – Autism – And Me, readers meet a little boy who sometimes struggles to make sense of his brother´s unusual behavior. He understands that because of autism, his brother does some things differently, but when he sees how much attention that gets him from parents and teachers, he sometimes feels left out. Illustrator Alicia Diane Durand’s vibrant and engaging pictures bring Aisha Pope’s words to life in an attempt to help siblings of children with autism see that their feelings are normal, and that many other children feel the same way. An author´s note provides a list of tools that parents can use to encourage and include their typically developing children, as well as their children with special needs.

Growing up in Australia in the 1970s, Caiseal Mór was labelled `retarded' and `an idiot', and his parents were led to believe that physical punishment could cure his autism. In this courageous and captivating autobiography, Mór vividly captures his early experiences of dissociation from his true existence - a common reaction by children suffering from repeated abuse - and the various personas through which he lived through in his teens and early adulthood - the Mahjee, Charles P. Puddlejumper, Marco Polo and Chameleon Feeble. The rocky path towards discovering his true identity and finally accepting himself takes him on a spiritual pilgrimage via several different countries, once nearly getting caught unwittingly carrying drugs over the Moroccan border; forming relationships with people he meets but very often misjudges; to the revelation - the awakening - of love and acceptance.

Anne's sister Becky was born in 1958, long before most people had even heard of autism. Diagnosed with 'emotional disturbance,' Becky was subjected for much of her childhood to well-meaning but futile efforts at 'rehabilitation' or 'cure,' as well as prolonged spells in institutions away from her family. Painting a vivid picture of growing up in small-town America during the Sixties, Anne describes her sister's and her own painful childhood experiences with compassion and honesty. Struggling with the separation from her sister and the emotional and financial hardships the family experienced as a result of Becky's condition, Anne nevertheless found that her sister had something that 'normal' people were unable to offer. Today she is accepting of her sister's autism and the impact, both painful and positive, it has had on both their lives. This bittersweet memoir will resonate with families affected by autism and other developmental disorders and will appeal to everyone interested in the condition.

Taking a psychoanalytic and developmental approach, Autistic Child as a Person outlines in considerable detail the new developments in therapeutic techniques used by the Tavistock Autism Team and Workshop to treat autistic children. It also underlines the importance of support for parents and siblings, who are all too often ignored, as a factor in the childs progress. The book presents fresh ideas about the importance of personality for the developmental course of the condition, and the implications of psychotherapeutic technique. Using case vignettes to illustrate the theoretical ideas emerging from the Workshop, coupled with case studies which highlight the patients changing contact with the therapist, it gives a fascinating picture of the individuality of each child and of the sensitivity and skill required for each treatment. Aiming to be accessible to both professionals and parents, the text should provide a useful insight into the nature and course of this condition and its treatment.
