Synopsis

This book is a comprehensive guide in understanding autism, formulating effective communication strategies, and developing best care practices for health care professionals. It covers sensory issues, pain tolerance, body awareness, communication challenges, legal and ethical issues, HIPPA compliance, Americans with Disabilities Act, and many more issues associated with dealing with a patient or others on the autism spectrum.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.
