This will always be a work in progress in that I am constantly adding to it and correcting it.I welcome any additions or corrections you can contribute and thank everyone who has already sent me contributions, in particular one correspondent who has made numerous contributions but wishes to remain anonymous.I will leave it to others to tackle such a list (I believe The Indiana Resource Center for Autism maintains such a list as does the Autism Research Unit of the University of Sunderland, England).I would not mind assembling a list of the 20 or 50 most valuable articles if I knew how to choose them.[autism,account,family] The Spiral Staircase: My Climb Out of Darkness (Knopf, 2004).
not every book about psychoanalysis is yet labelled [autism,psychoanalysis], and in particular, a book labelled simply [autism] is not to be assumed to be a general book on autism.Also: the fiction books listed because they have an autistic or autistic-like character are also labelled autism. ISBN: 0415055660 (paperback, 144 pages, Routledge, 1991); ISBN: 0415055652 (hardcover, 140 pages, Tavistock, 1992). : Creative Ideas During the School Years (Adams Publications, 1995). Contains practical suggestions for teaching children with autism contributed by teachers and parents. Live company: psychoanalytic psychotherapy with autistic, borderline, deprived, and abused children (London: Tavistock/Routledge, 1992). Subjects include: Autism, psychoanalysis, schizophrenia in children and abused children. I've also seen the title as Autistic Child As a Person.Autism: A Social Skills Approach for Children and Adolescents (Winslow, 1998). [autism,parent,intro] The handbook of autism: a guide for parents and professionals, revised and updated 2nd edition (Routledge, 1999). ISBN: 041514602X (paperback, 256 pages); ISBN: 0415146011 (hardcover). [autism,music] Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders DSM-IV-TR, 4th edition (American Psychiatric Association, 2000). ISBN: 0890420246 (hardcover, 943 pages); ISBN: 0890420254 (paperback, 943 pages, American Psychiatric Association, 2000).I'm trying to include every book title I can lay my hands on.At the time I'm writing this (2/00), I have titles for between 600 and 700 books specifically dedicated to Autism and I seldom add a book to the list because the vast majority of times that I see a reference or citation to a book, it is already in the list.
