The Hidden Face of Autism
'The Hidden Face of Autism' - Professor David Skuse & Rebecca Chilvers
The Hidden Face of Autism is an informative DVD that consists of interviews with children with autism. Each of the interviews looks at the symptomology of autism including reciprocal communication, use of language, repetitive behaviours and the way in which the children play. The children shown in the interviews with Rebecca Chilvers have varying IQ's, ranging from low to high and ages ranging from toddlers to late teens.
The DVD also includes an interview with Mark Haddon, author of the bestseller 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time', whose main character and narrator, Christopher, suffers from Asperger Syndrome; an autistic spectrum disorder.
DVD seeks to
educate people about these high functioning kids and how difficult they
are to diagnose. It is interactive so that users can choose elements to
watch, and learn from the interaction with those elements - for example,
symptoms used to diagnose autism, parent comments and teacher comments.''
- Professor David Skuse
The Hidden Face of Autism costs £30.00 (postage and packing is £3.95 or free on orders of two or more DVDs).

'The Hidden World of Autism' - Rebecca Chilvers
The engaging book The Hidden World of Autism is a celebration of the talents and insights of children on the autism spectrum disorder, presenting a collection of writings and drawings contributed by 21 autistic children.
The children's work covers topics that are of primary importance in understanding some of the common experiences that children with autism, and their families, go through. These include life before diagnosis, friendships, relationships, feelings, bullying and the future. A key characteristic of having autism is the inability to express emotions and too often this prevents children with autism from being heard. This book gives these children both a voice and a forum for creative expression and provides a direct insight into what having autism means for the children themselves and how they feel about their experiences.
