This book is a comprehensive guide in understanding how to deal with a person on the autism spectrum within the medical system, formulating effective communication strategies, and developing best care practices. It covers sensory issues, pain tolerance, body awareness, communication challenges, legal & ethical issues, HIPPA compliance, Americans with Disabilities Act, and much more.

It's important for healthcare professionals to realize that communication starts at the Admissions Desk, and follows through to the patient's discharge. Whether the patient is simply going for a routine doctor's appointment, or getting admitted for major surgery, the autism patient needs specialized care for optimal results. This book is geared for use in healthcare curriculum courses, as well as use as a guidebook for all healthcare and allied healthcare providers.

Anita was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome at age fifty. She graduated from Columbia University in New York City with a Master of Science degree in nurse anesthesia in 1988. She's worked as a certified registered nurse anesthetist, specializing in anesthesia for neurosurgery ever since graduation. An advocate for people with Asperger's syndrome, Anita started a support group for people of all ages with Asperger's, their families and friends, which meets monthly. She is the author of her latest book, "Asperger's syndrome: When Life Hands You Lemons, Make Lemonade." She is the Founder and CEO of Born With Asperger's, an educational and help site for not only people with Asperger's, but their families, employers, fellow employees, educators, neighbors, and anyone who might know someone with Asperger's.
