Library Thursday: When Down syndrome and autism intersect

A much anticipated book will be released this week by US publisher Woodbine House:

When Down syndrome and autism intersect - a guide for parents and professionals, edited by Margaret Froehlke and Robin Zaborek, Woodbine House, 2012:

When Down Syndrome and Autism Intersect offers a thorough examination of the unique profile of a Down Syndrome-Autism Spectrum Disorder (DS-ASD) diagnosis and best practices for screening, treatment, and caretaking through the lifespan. This one-stop resource, the first of its kind, will greatly benefit families whose child is already diagnosed, and also those who suspect something more than Down syndrome. Professionals, too, will find information on how to distinguish DS-ASD from a diagnosis of just Down syndrome, and guidance on providing services for children and adults. (extract from the publisher's notes)

A copy is on order for the Down Syndrome NSW library, and will be available for loan to members in the new year.

Online orders to Australian addresses are not accepted directly by Woodbine House, but their books are readily available to Australian buyers. We recommend that you compare prices and availability at Silvereye Educational Publications, The Book Depository,, or Fox Educational Resources.
