Self-injurious behavior occurs in almost half of those with autism and is one of the most devastating and challenging-to-treat behaviors. There are many different forms of self-injury, such as head banging, hand biting, hair pulling, excessive scratching, and much more. With contributions from the leading experts in research and treatment, the book provides a comprehensive analysis of self-injurious behavior (SIB) in people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or related developmental disabilities, and the different methods available to treat them. Medical and behavioral researchers have studied SIB for over 50 years, but many practitioners and parents are still unfamiliar with the wide range of contributing causes and treatment options. Beginning with an explanation of SIB and its various forms, the contributors outline the many possible underlying causes of self-injury, such as seizures, hormonal imbalance in teenagers, gastrointestinal conditions, allergies, and stress, and show how a multi-disciplinary approach when uncovering the causes of self-injury can lead to successful treatment strategies. They explain the treatment options available for SIB, including nutritional, medical, psychiatric, sensory, and behavioral approaches, and show how an integrative approach to treating self-injury may be effective for many individuals. The book will be an invaluable addition to the bookshelves of any practitioner working with people with an ASD or related condition, as well as parents and direct care providers.

Adolescence is a challenging stage for all individuals, especially for those with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Individuals with ASD face increased social isolation and engage in more challenging behaviors during adolescence. They also experience increased mental health challenges including anxiety and depression, and they are among the least likely of any disability group to attend college, be competitively employed, or live independently. At the same time, adolescents with ASD face a major shift in available services and support as they exit the K-12 educational system. The need to present what is known about this group in order to inform clinicians, researchers, and educators cannot be understated. Adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder synthesizes current science on adolescents and young adults with ASD in order to inform mental health practitioners and education professionals who work directly with these individuals. While early childhood interventions for ASD have been extensively developed and tested, research on adolescents and young adults with ASD has lagged behind until recently. This comprehensive handbook can be utilized to train students and professionals in applied mental health roles. The handbook includes three sections: Part I reviews diagnosis and treatment of adolescents with ASD; Part II details how to support their educational needs; and Part III discusses special populations including college students and young women. Chapters highlight recommendations for clinicians and include study questions and additional resources.

This book addresses the specific mental health needs of girls and young women with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Looking at the ways autism presents differently in girls than in boys, and the mental health conditions that occur most frequently in girls with ASD, this is the essential guide for clinicians and educators on tailoring interventions and support to meet girls' needs. Describing the current assessment process for autism diagnosis, the book explains why girls are under- or mis-diagnosed, leading to later mental health issues. It outlines the types of intervention that are particularly helpful for working with girls to reduce anxiety, improve social interaction skills, and manage self-harm. The book also covers how to manage eating disorders and feeding difficulties, focusing on working with girls with sensory processing difficulties. There is advice on how to deal with the emotional impact on parents, carers and families, and the challenges they face when negotiating appropriate psychological and educational support.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Heilpädagogik, Sonderpädagogik, Note: 1,0, Evangelische Fachhochschule Rheinland-Westfalen-Lippe (Fachbereich II Heilpädagogik), Veranstaltung: Behinderung und Demenz, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Sebastian Kau studiert an der ev. Fachhochschule Rheinland-Westfalen-Lippe in Bochum im Studiengang Heilpädagogik. Mit vorliegender Arbeit hat er sich einem seltenen Behinderungsbild zugewandt, welches in der Fachwelt realtiv wenig diskutiert wird. In Bezug auf führende U.S. amerikanische Forscher in diesem Gebiet erläutert Kau unter Einbeziehung aktueller Forschungsergebnisse das Krankheitsbild, sowie seine Relevanz im heilpädagigischen Arbeitsfeld. Das Lesch-Nyhan-Syndrom ist eine prognostisch eher ungünstige Erkrankung, basierend auf einer Störung des Purinstoffwechsels. Auf das Syndrom aufmerksam geworden bin ich durch einen Bericht in der Zeitschrift „Spiegel“ aus dem Jahre 2008. Dort wurde über einen Lesch-Nyhan-Erkrankten berichtet. Durch Tiefenhirnstimulation sollte dem Erkrankten dabei geholfen werden seinen Körper besser kontrollieren zu können. Diese relativ neuen, für mich sehr interessanten Therapieformen, die Tatsache, dass das Lesch-Nyhan Syndrom eine eher seltene Krankheit ist und daher weniger breites Interesse erfahren hat, sowie die mit dem Syndrom einhergehende Grausamkeit für den Betroffenen und dessen Familie haben mein Interesse an der Erkrankung geweckt und mich dazu veranlasst, mich in meiner Hausarbeit mit ihr zu beschäftigen.
