The state of North Carolina has had a longstanding concern and com mitment to the understanding and treatment of autistic, communications handicapped children and their families. This commitment found expres sion in the only comprehensive statewide program for families confronted with this disability, Division for the Treatment and Education of Autistic and related Communication handicapped CHildren (Division TEACCH). Our program staff has been privileged to respond to this commitment by developing and providing the needed services, and to engage in research informed by our clinical experience. Although many of the problems con cerning these developmentally disabled children remain to be solved, substantial progress has been made during this past decade of collabo ration among professionals, parents, and their government representa tives. The TEACCH staff has resolved to mark the effectiveness of this collaboration by holding a series of annual conferences focused on the several major issues confronting these children and their families. The conferences are held in order to bring together the best research knowl edge available to us from throughout the country, and to encourage par ticipation by the different professional disciplines and concerned parents. In addition these annual meetings form the basis for a series of books based on the conference theme. These books are, however, not merely the published proceedings of the presented papers: some chapters are expanded from conference presentations and many others were solicited from experts in the related areas of research and their service application.

Most important, this book gives parents and teachers a simple treatment program that can be easily incorporated into the child's daily schedule at home or at school. The treatment program helps to increase the variety of foods in the child's diet, improve the child's ability to accept touch inside and around the mouth, and expand the number of sounds the child produces - and thereby improving overall functioning. Parents and teachers are given concrete examples of how to set up the treatment environment to achieve optimal performance from the child, including how to structure their own language to enhance the child's processing of auditory information. Further, lots of activities and other ideas are offered, along with case stories showing how this successful program works with children of various ages and ability levels.

Travis shares how eating healthier and more nutritional foods has helped his mental, emotional, and social health. Travis was skeptical of the diet working to help with autism but since he started eating healthy about a month ago he has noticed not only has his mental and emotional health improved, but his social skills had also improved a great deal. Travis is a huge fan of eating healthy foods. Travis really recommend that everyone with autism go gluten free. It could be that the food we ate has made us have such a high autism right. Travis says there is no cure for autism but he is a testimony for eating healthier and improving mental and emotional health as well as improving social skills.Travis has been eating nutritional foods now for about a month and he explains how he feels like a brand new person. "This diet has changed my life and turned me into a happier and more stable person." Travis says. Travis has made more friends in the past month just from eating healthier and improving his social skills than he has with taking prescription drugs for over ten years now. Travis is a firm believer in eating a lot of nutritional foods to combat the damage done by junk foods over the years. He really believes that the diet he is on has helped him to overcome a lot of emotional and mental health issues. He even thinks that this diet is really improving his social skills. He says that he almost feels like he does not have autism anymore even though he knows he does. In this book Travis talks about how he got started on the diet and explains what the diet looks like for him. He will then share how it has improved his life. Here is an excerpt from the book. "Just to review, I cannot stress enough how much better I feel since I have started eating healthier and watching my nutrition intake. I feel like a completely new and energized person and it is the best feeling in the world. I just love to eat healthy not because I love the food but because it makes me feel so much better and happier. I highly recommend all of my friends with autism try eating healthier as a way to get treatment for autism. It might not work exactly the same for every person but I do feel like each and every person could benefit from eating healthier and watching their nutrition and calorie intakes. It is a lot of work at first to learn how to do the diet and watch everything. You have to know what to buy and what to use in your diet but you can learn rather quickly like I did. It takes me some extra time out of my week to plan for it but it is well worth it because it really does make me feel so much better and happier. I am a healthier person today because I am on this specialized diet than I was five years ago or even ten years ago. This diet has really changed my life for the better and I am forever grateful to it."

Division TEACCH, located in the School of Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, was one of the first programs in the country to understand that autism was an organic rather than a biologic condition. We were also one of the earliest programs to recognize the enormous variability in characteristics and behaviors of children described as autistic. For these reasons, the processes of diagnosis and assessment have always been important and central to our program. We are therefore extremely pleased to have a volume representing the most current thinking of the field's leaders in these important areas. As with the preceding books in our series, Current Issues in Autism, this volume is based on one of the annual TEACCH conferences held in Chapel Hill each May. The books are not simply published proceedings of the conference papers, however. Rather, conference participants are asked to develop a full chapter around their presentations. Other international experts whose work is beyond the scope of the conference, but related to the major theme, are asked to contribute chapters as well. These volumes are designed to provide the most current knowledge in research and professional practice available on the most important issues defining and clarifying autism.

'The layout and presentation of the material are very "user friendly" and the book is, therefore, easy to read. Those with less direct experience of living or working with children who are autistic, including teachers and learning support assistants, who require some help in appreciating the complex range of behaviours and responses such children present, will find this little book illuminating' - Support for Learning "This is a really practical tool........ the structure of the book is clear and uncomplicated for the reader to access. This book is based on a wealth of experience of working closely both with individuals with Autism and their families. It will be a revelation to professionals interested in this area and a comfort to carers who live the experience. Most importantly, it reminds us of the barriers to positive parent/professional partnership and challenges us to build supportive bridges to effective intervention for the individual with Autism. Autism NI (PAPA) was created out of such a dynamic approach and therefore welcomes this significant commentary on this critical issue." By giving a concise account of what life may be like following the diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorders (ASDs) in the family, this book examines service provision at different stages, and provides information for parents, carers and practitioners' - Arlene Cassidy, Chief Executive, Autism NI Parents want support and advice during and after a diagnosis of ASDs, and professionals want to be able to give the right answers. This book will meet the needs of both. Issues dealt with include: " how to help the family " how to help brothers and sisters " preparing children with ASDs for the world outside " keeping expectations high " how to work together with schools and other agencies " finding community links 'In my view it would be a good read for relatives, friends and teachers in training to enable them to understand many of the issues associated with children who have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It points up the various facets of having and living with a child with autism - as far as possible from a positive point of view. The authors, from their obvious extensive experience, have identified many problems and circumstances that parents/carers are likely to meet and that can be tackled in a wide variety of ways. The book is designed to raise these for consideration - and this it does well' - Support for Learning, Volume 22, Number 2

Finding out that your child has Asperger's Syndrome or Autism can be devastating enough, but when you discover that he or she won't eat 99.9 per cent of all food and drink in the known universe, the fun really starts. This was the situation the author found herself in a decade ago when her son first took a dislike to milk, and then to virtually every other substance she attempted to feed him. Her book was written to reassure other parents that there are lots of people out there in the same boat, and to suggest practical methods of dealing with the problem. As well as drawing on her own experience, the author has spoken to parents, children, and professionals with first-hand knowledge of dietary difficulties, and their advice and comments form a key part of the book.
