Autism, an inside-out approach : an innovative look at the mechanics of 'autism' and its developmental 'cousins' by Donna Williams( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Donna William's challenging new book, written by an autistic person for people with autism and related disorders, carers, and the professionals who work with them, is a practical handbook to understanding, living with and working with autism. Exploring autism from the inside, it shows clearly how the behaviours associated with autism can have a range of different causes, and in many cases reflect the autistic person's attempt to gain control over their internal world. The sensory and perceptual problems that challenge a person with autism are described in depth, together with strategies for tackling them so as to enable that person to take more control of their lives. Donna Williams comments on the various approaches to autism, drawing out those strategies that are of real use, and explaining why some approaches may prove counterproductive, leaving the autistic person feeling even more isolated and misunderstood." "Taking the view that understanding autism is the key to managing the condition, Donna William's book will bring illumination to all those who have felt baffled and frustrated by the outside appearance of autism. It contains a wealth of helpful suggestions, insights and new ideas, exploding old myths and promoting a view that all those involved with autism will find empowering and creative."--Jacket
Exposure anxiety--the invisible cage : an exploration of self-protection responses in the autism spectrum and beyond by Donna Williams( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exposure anxiety is increasingly understood as a crippling condition affecting a high proportion of people on the autism spectrum. To many it is an invisible cage, leaving the person suffering from it aware, but buried alive in their own involuntary responses and isolation. Exposure Anxiety: The Invisible Cage describes the condition and its underlying physiological causes, and presents a range of approaches and strategies that can be used to combat it. Based on personal experience, the book shows how people with autism can be shown how to emerge from the stranglehold of exposure anxiety and d
The jumbled jigsaw : an insider's approach to the treatment of autistic spectrum 'fruit salads' by Donna Williams( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and Japanese and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Jumbled Jigsaw exposes autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) not as single entities but as a combination of a whole range of often untreated, sometimes easily treatable, underlying conditions. Exploring everything from mood, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive and tic disorders to information processing and sensory perceptual difficulties, including dependency issues, identity problems and much more, Donna demonstrates how a number of such conditions can combine to form a 'cluster condition' and underpin the label 'autism spectrum disorder'. Donna Williams encourages and empowers families to look at what they can do to change their child's environment to address anxiety, overload and other issues. She also gives carers the necessary information to navigate the booming autism marketplace and demand the right tools for the job. The author also challenges professionals to adopt a multi-disciplinary approach to identifying and treating the cluster conditions that make up an autism spectrum diagnosis, and to improve service delivery to those in need. The Jumbled Jigsaw is a call to modern society to take responsibility and accept diversity. It is written in a very human and user-friendly way for parents and for Auties and Aspies themselves, but it is also aimed at carers, professionals, policy-makers and service providers

Nobody nowhere : the extraordinary autobiography of an autistic by Donna Williams( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 1998 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Labeled deaf, retarded, disturbed, and insane, Donna Williams lived in a world of her own. Alternating between rigid hostility and extroversion, she waged what she termed her war against "the world." She lived in a dreamlike state, withdrawn, viewing her incomprehensible surroundings from the security of a "world under glass," parroting the voices of those around her in the hope that they would leave her alone. Few people understood her, least of all Donna herself. She knew only that something was wrong with her, and she yearned to be "normal." It was not until three years ago, when Donna was twenty-five, that she discovered the word - autism - that would at last give her the opportunity to understand herself and to build a bridge to join the real world. Nobody Nowhere, Donna's extraordinary autobiography, is her attempt to come to terms with autism and is a vivid memoir of the titanic struggles she has endured in her quest to merge "my world" with "the world." The book takes readers on an incredible journey into the mind of an autistic person and in the process gives an unprecedented insider's view of a little-understood condition and destroys the many myths and misconceptions about autism. As useful as the label of autism has been for her, her memoir reveals that the label does not define her. This eloquent, often searing book also illuminates her fierce intelligence, creativity, and sense of humor. Hers is a story of incredible courage and inspiration, too. Reared in an extremely hostile environment, Donna faced the ever-present threat of institutionalization. Instead, she ran away from home at a young age, survived on the streets, and even managed to get herself through college. Today she lives independently. While Nobody Nowhere will be a breakthrough book for autistic people and their families, its poetic sensibility and extraordinary insights will make it inspired reading for anyone interested in the soul of the mind
