Autism is a condition that affects the way an individual relates to the world around them. Its diagnosis is based on, amongst other criteria, social interaction and communication. It also affects each individual differently, which is why it is often called the autistic spectrum. Many in the field refer to the autistic spectrum as either ASCs (Autism Spectrum Conditions) or ASDs (Autistic Spectrum Disorder. Within this spectrum is a condition called Asperger Syndrome, which lies at the intellectually high functioning (this relates to an IQ that is average or above average) end of the spectrum. - PJ Hughes Description 'Reflections..' is a highly informative book about Autism and Asperger's Syndrome, which, uniquely, is written by someone who has been diagnosed. This book is essentially autobiographical. PJ looks at the field of autism by casting an Asperger eye over the various terminologies used and the various diagnostic criteria. He also looks at the autistic traits and how he perceives they relate to him. He makes notes of his own life and makes observations of the world in general.About the Author PJ was born in Woolwich, London in 1968 and moved north in 1988 to go to polytechnic, as it then was, and has stayed there ever since. He currently lives in Sheffield. He was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome in 1999 and is actively involved in activities relating to the Autistic Spectrum. Not only does he give talks, but also writes about the subject and takes part in research. Other activities include being a member of the National Executive Committee of the Home Office Disability Support Network (HODS), member of the disability subgroup in Sheffield and Autism Buddy Network leader at the Home Office. One of his long-term ambitions is to work full-time in the disability field, particularly in autism.
