Social behavior in autism by Eric Schopler( Book )

12 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En raison des problèmes particuliers reliés à l'autisme, plusieurs théories ont été mises de l'avant pour expliquer ce qu'est l'autisme : le rejet des parents ou la neuropathologie des individus. Au fil des ans les chercheurs et cliniciens ont été fascinés par le retrait social où se retrouvent les jeunes autistes. Ce n'est que récemment que plusieurs efforts, issus de différents milieux pour résoudre l'énigme de l'isolement de la personne autiste commencent à avoir une portée sur la compréhension de ce phénomène et des façons de traiter ou d'éduquer les personnes autistes. Ce document réuni les dernières recherches (NDLR. Nous vous rappelons que ce document est publié en 1986) sur le plan international et la majeure partie des chapitres touchent les points les plus importants pour comprendre qui sont les personnes autistes : le développement social, les problèmes sociaux, la communication, l'intégration sociale et les aptitudes ou les habiletés nécessaires pour favoriser l'adaptation sociale de la personne autiste. Un chapitre (p. 351-374) est consacré au modèle TEACCH et l'enseignement des comportements sociaux
Autism in adolescents and adults by Eric Schopler( Book )

16 editions published between 1982 and 1985 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pendant plusieurs années, l'aspect de chronicité de l'autisme a été ignoré ou incompris par les acteurs du domaine sociosanitaire. Plusieurs chercheurs et praticiens ont accepté d'emblée la définition de l'autisme décrite par Leo Kanner, soit un trouble relié à la psychiatrie infantile. Malgré tout, les manifestations touchant le comportement de l'enfant autiste se modifient au cours du développement de celui-ci, et les jeunes enfants deviennent des adolescents et des adultes. Ce document propose un survol des différents besoins et des problèmes rencontrés par les distributeurs de services auprès des adolescents et des adultes autistes. Le document aborde le développement de l'adolescent et la vie d'adulte, les besoins au point de vue du langage et de la communication, les loisirs, l'éducation et la formation professionnelle, les besoins médicaux, la sexualité, les comportements agressifs et l'agressivité ainsi que les besoins des familles et le stress touchant le milieu familial

The Effects of autism on the family by Eric Schopler( Book )

10 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce document, comme tous ceux de la collection "Curent Issues in Autism", est le recueil des conférences annuelles organisées par le TEACCH. Plus particulièrement, il touche la conférence de 1982 qui portait sur les effets ou les conséquences de l'autisme sur la vie familiale. Au-delà du simple résumé de conférences, ce livre aborde la question des attitudes des professionnels envers les parents et l'évolution du partenariat parent-professionnel, l'enfant et sa famille, l'influence de l'enfant sur l'environnement familial, tout comme l'influence de l'environnement sur l'enfant, le modèle TEACCH (Treatment and Education of Autistic and related Communication handicapped Children), la vision ainsi que la perception des parents sur le développement de leur enfant. Il est aussi décrit les différents rôles que doivent jouer les parents, intervenants et professionnels, les relations entre les parents et leur enfant, les diverses thérapies pour aider les parents et supporter le milieu familial. De plus, ce document traite des émotions qui émergent du rapport entre les différents partenaires, de la reconnaissance des parents comme éducateurs privilégiés, tant pour l'enfant que pour les autres intervenants, de l'explication de la relation entre la déficience intellectuelle et l'autisme pour des parents, les ressources disponibles et l'adaptation de l'enfant autiste, et, pour terminer, de l'épuisement que peut vivre la famille et le rôle de la fratrie dans le système familial où un enfant rencontre des difficultés comme l'autisme
Communication problems in autism by Eric Schopler( Book )

11 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The North Carolina State Legislature's mandate to Division TEACCH has three major components. First, to provide the most up-to-date and cost­ effective services possible for families with autistic or similar language­ impaired children; second, to conduct research aimed toward the better under­ standing of such devastating disorders; and third, to provide training for the professionals needed to pursue these goals. One element in achieving these aims is to hold annual conferences on topics of special importance to the under­ standing and treatment of autism and similar disorders. In addition to training professionals and parents on the most recent de­ velopments in each conference topic, we are publishing a series, Current Issues in Autism, based on these conferences. These books are not, however, simply the published proceedings of the conference papers. Instead, some chapters are expanded conference presentations, whereas others come from national and in­ ternational experts whose work is beyond the scope of the conference, but es­ sential in our attempt at comprehensive coverage of the conference theme. These volumes are intended to provide the most current knowledge and profes­ sional practice available to us at the time
Diagnosis and assessment in autism by Eric Schopler( Book )

12 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Division TEACCH, located in the School of Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, was one of the first programs in the country to understand that autism was an organic rather than a biologic condition. We were also one of the earliest programs to recognize the enormous variability in characteristics and behaviors of children described as autistic. For these reasons, the processes of diagnosis and assessment have always been important and central to our program. We are therefore extremely pleased to have a volume representing the most current thinking of the field's leaders in these important areas. As with the preceding books in our series, Current Issues in Autism, this volume is based on one of the annual TEACCH conferences held in Chapel Hill each May. The books are not simply published proceedings of the conference papers, however. Rather, conference participants are asked to develop a full chapter around their presentations. Other international experts whose work is beyond the scope of the conference, but related to the major theme, are asked to contribute chapters as well. These volumes are designed to provide the most current knowledge in research and professional practice available on the most important issues defining and clarifying autism

Asperger syndrome or high-functioning autism? by Eric Schopler( Book )

12 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Au cours des dernières années, après la publication du High-functioning Individuals with Autism chez le même éditeur, les auteurs indiquaient qu'il semblait n'y avoir aucune distinction clinique significative entre le syndrome d'Asperger ou du trouble d'Asperger et les personnes autistes à capacités élevées. Depuis, un nombre sans cesse grandissant d'études sur des personnes ayant un diagnostic du syndrome d'Asperger ont amené les auteurs à faire la comparaison entre ces deux entités. Pour ce faire, furent regroupés plusieurs chercheurs du domaine, qui proposent à leur tour, différents aspects du syndrome d'Asperger, incluant son histoire, son diagnostic, les conditions reliées et le traitement. Tous les auteurs ont gardé la même grille d'analyse pour leur texte, soit : y a-t-il une différence entre le syndrome d'Asperger et les personnes autistes à capacités élevées? Toutefois, pour Schopler (p. 397), si une distinction valable est trouvée entre la nomenclature syndrome d'Asperger ou personne autiste à capacités élevées, peu importe la notion qui sera retenue pour identifier la catégorie d'individus qui chevauche entre l'autisme et le développement du langage normal. Cependant, l'utilisation de syndrome d'Asperger pour identifier une catégorie spécifique, est prématurée et ne peut que causer une confusion, ralentissant ainsi la compréhension et le traitement de l'autisme

Neurobiological issues in autism by Eric Schopler( Book )

13 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a division of the School of Medicine at the University of North Carolina at ChapeI Hili, TEACCH has always been involved in the latest biological research on autism and related developmental disabilities. However, until now there has not been sufficient information to justify aseparate volume on this most important topic. Recent advances both in our understanding of the brain and in the technology to facilitate the measurement of neurological functioning have stimulated significant growth, which is reflected in this volume. As with the preceding books in this series, Current Issues in Autism, this volume is based on one of the annual TEACCH conferences held in ChapeI Hili each May. The books are not simply published proceedings of the conference papers, however. lnstead, conference participants are asked to develop chapters around their presentations, and other international experts whose work is beyond the scope of the conference, but related to the major theme, are asked to contribute as weil. These volumes are intended to provide the most current knowledge and professional practice available to us concerning major issues in autism
