Paperback:Asperger's children, the origins of autism in Nazi Vienna:2020 Paperback
Author: Sheffer, Edith
Year: 2020
Language: English
Interest category: Health & welfare
Media class: Paperback
Publisher: W.W. Norton and Company
Resource type: Physical
Note: Published outside the British Isles In 1930s and 1940s Vienna, child psychiatrist Hans Asperger sought to define autism as a diagnostic category, treating those children he deemed capable of participating fully in society. Depicted as compassionate and devoted, Asperger was in fact deeply influenced by Nazi psychiatry. Although he offered care to children he deemed promising, he prescribed harsh institutionalisation and even transfer to one of the Reich's killing centres, for children with greater disabilities. With sensitivity and passion, Edith Sheffer reveals the heart-breaking voices and experiences of many of these children, whilst illuminating a Nazi regime obsessed with sorting the population into categories, cataloguing people by race, heredity, politics, religion, sexuality, criminality and biological defects-labels that became the basis of either rehabilitation or persecution and extermination.

Note: Published outside the British Isles Diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at the age of eight, Camilla Pang struggled to understand the world around her and the way people worked.

Media class: Paperback
Publisher: Orion Spring

Note: For every child diagnosed with autism, there are usually two worried parents who may not have a clue about the condition or how best to help their little one. Jessie Hewitson's son was two-years old when he was diagnosed with autism. Like many other worried parents before her, Jessie's immediate instinct was to learn everything she could about the condition and how best to support her child. But when The Times award-winning journalist embarked on her own investigative process, she soon uncovered a cloud of conflicting, panic-inducing information. She realised that advice from unsafe corners of the Internet, strangers and even well-meaning friends can make you feel overwhelmed, vulnerable and disheartened. She decided to write this book to provide other parents in similar situations with a wealth of practical and reliable support, all in one place. General adult
