i've just read lorna wings book, the autistic spectrum, and fiona marshs, living with autism.

i'd be interested in any recommendations people have found helpful.

also especially any good books written by someone with autism?

this, i'm reading this at the moment, its written by a teenage boy with AS/ASD, its a bit different as it is a story but it helps you understand the way ASD children/teens think.

ive got " the autism source book" by karen siff exkorn, (bits of it are ok, mostly american point of view)and "children with autism" by adelle jameson tilton is good!... also have "is that my child?" by dr robin pauc and "understanding a.d.h.d" - the last two aren't about autism, but have good ideas about coping with poor confidence and challenging sleep patterns and diet, and attitudes of other adults/children.
