About this product
- DescriptionIn her new book, Phoebe Caldwell, an expert practitioner with over 30 years' experience working with people with learning disabilities, offers us a fresh insight into autism spectrum disorders. Shifting her attention away from presentation and symptoms alone, Phoebe explores and attempts to understand the sensory issues experienced by those on the spectrum and their neurobiological roots in an effort to find new ways of alleviating the distress that can characterise this condition. The Anger Box is a book of ideas that spans a wide field of research and will be of interest to professionals, but it will also appeal to parents with autistic children, those with a general interest in the subject and many individuals on the autism spectrum themselves. The book explores the relationship between pain and external stimuli, trigeminal neuralgia, visual distortions, sensory overload, environmental and neurological factors implicated in the development of ASD, and a wide range of other areas. Drawing upon her own wealth of experience, the experiences of people on the spectrum and new scientific research, Phoebe presents a fascinating and engaging exploration of life on the spectrum, richly textured, vibrant and above all informative.
- Author BiographyPhoebe Caldwell is an Intensive Interaction practitioner working mainly with children and adults on the autistic spectrum, many of whom have behavioural distress. Phoebe's methods combine using a person's body language to communicate, with paying attention to those aspects of an individual's environment that are triggering sensory distress. For four years Phoebe was a Rowntree Research Fellow looking at best practice. She teaches management, therapists, parents, teachers, advocates and carers, nationally and internationally. She is also employed by NHS, social services and community and education services to work with individuals they are finding it difficult to provide a service for. She has published seven books and four training films and a number of academic papers. In 2010, she was awarded the Times/Sternberg Active Life Award for work on autism and contribution to the community, and in July 2011 Bristol University awarded her an Honorary Doctorate of Science for communication with people with autism.
