This book provides parents with a complete overview of the genetic disorders most commonly associated with autism, including those linked to immune dysfunction, gastrointestinal disturbances, seizures, fits, and epilepsy. Kenneth Aitken demystifies the umbrella term 'autism' by alphabetically listing these conditions along with information about how common they are, their causes, signs, and symptoms, and appropriate methods of treatment and management. Information on support groups and sources of further information are also included to help parents obtain any additional support they need.
