Autism with Severe Learning Difficulties by Rita Jordan
Book DescriptionThis book is aimed at those care for and/or educate the large group of individuals with autism who also have severe learning difficulties. Its focus is children and young people but many of the issues and suggestions are equally applicable to those who are working with adults with similar problems. It is a practical guide to effective treatment and care, showing through examples how behaviour that is seen should be understood and how to build on strengths and reduce problems. The approach uses techniques from a variety of programmes and covers important topics such as the implications of the dual diagnosis; characteristic behaviour and development; fostering social interaction; educational provision; understanding, preventing and managing challenging behaviour; support for parents and sexuality and the transition to adulthood.

Lawson lays out her theory of Single Attention and Associated Cognition in Autism. Whereas neurotypical people easily shift their attention from one interest to another, those on the autism spectrum tend to focus on a single theme. When this learning style is understood individuals on the autism spectrum can achieve their full potential.
