Dasha's Journal by Olga Bogdashina

Book Description

Just a few weeks old, Dasha the cat found herself in a family with an autistic child. The publication of Temple Grandin's book Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behaviour turned the household into a research laboratory, with the humans observing Dasha's behaviours and the cat experimenting with the 'human guinea pigs'. The feline perspective provides a new outlook on autism conditions, challenging long established stereotypes and analysing controversies in the field with an unbiased attitude and humour. The text is interspersed with Dasha's 'wisdoms', 'research notes' and definitions of concepts based on her own understanding, such as 'A pet shop is a place where humans come to be adopted by the animals who are brave enough to take a responsibility of looking after them.' Dasha's Journal provides research-based information in an amusing and accessible form and makes serious and complicated issues such as sensory perception, memory, communication, savant skills and challenging behaviours in autism easily understandable for the general reader.

Sensory Perceptual Issues in Autism and Asperger Syndrome by Olga Bogdashina Sensory Perceptual Issues in Autism and Asperger Syndrome, Paperback (February 2016)

The fully revised edition of this bestselling book brings the understanding of sensory perceptual issues in autism up to date with current research. It describes sensory perceptual experiences and sensitivities and explains the cognitive differences caused by them. The final chapters are devoted to assessment and different methods of intervention.

Autism and Spirituality by Olga Bogdashina Autism and Spirituality, Paperback (July 2013)

Spirituality plays a vital role in the lives of many people with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Drawing on interdisciplinary research as well as first-hand experiences of people with ASD, Olga Bogdashina shows how people with ASD experience their inner worlds and sense of self, and how this shapes the spiritual dimension of their lives.

Autism and the Edges of the Known World by Olga Bogdashina Autism and the Edges of the Known World, Paperback (July 2010)

Bogdashina explores theories of sensory perception and communication in autism. Drawing on linguistics, philosophy, neuroscience, psychology, anthropology and quantum mechanics, she looks at how the nature of the senses inform an individual's view of the world, and how language both reflects and constructs that view.

Theory of Mind and the Triad of Perspectives on Autism and Asperger Syndrome by Olga Bogdashina Theory of Mind and the Triad of Perspectives on Autism and Asperger Syndrome, Paperback (October 2005)

Inspired by the often uncomfortable interplay between autistic individuals, parents and professionals in understanding autistic spectrum conditions, Olga Bogdashina uses the concept of Theory of Mind (ToM) to consider these groups' different (and often conflicting) perspectives.
