Play and Imagination in Children With Autism goes beyond the usual autism literature by examining the complex problems children with autism experience in reciprocal social interaction, communication and imagination, by looking closely at the nature of the disorder in relation to play’s role in childhood culture and development,
as well as contemporary intervention practices.

The Out-Of-Sync Child: Recognizing and Coping With Sensory Integration Dysfunction is not about autism, however, a very common condition in autistic children; can manifest itself in excessively high or low activity levels, problems with motor coordination, over sensitivity or under sensitivity to sensations and movements, and other symptoms.

Teaching Children With Autism to Mind-Read: A Practical Guide for Teachers and Parents. This is the first guide on applying Theory of Mind--the ability to infer the mental states of others and use this information to interpret their behavior--to children with autism. It concentrates on the effective treatment of social and communicative abnormalities in children with autism, guiding the reader through the underlying experimental and clinical principles.

Soon Will Come the Light: A View from Inside the Autism Puzzle. Thomas McKean, an autistic author, successfully provides the reader with a new wealth of insight into areas known only to those individuals with autism. McKean' description of what he experiences when he "tunes out" is quite fascinating. He enters a world of alternate reality created within the boundary of his imagination. A scary darkness leads to majestic mountains, a castle, a dragon field, a domed city, ocean, sunken ship, red
fluorescent caverns, forest, and abandoned mansion. He expresses a fear of exploring too far and being unable to find his way back... How many of us wonder what our children with autism see when they have that far away look in their eyes?
