about this item

Heffernan explores sensory differences for people with autism spectrum disorder and different strategies that may be employed to manage those differences. In the process he addresses connections between autism, memory, and emotion; the part that anxiety plays in the lives of people with autism; and the connection between the experience of sensory differences and anxiety. Sometimes speaking to people with autism spectrum disorder and sometimes to their parents or partners, he considers such topics as the sensory systems, the sense-memory-emotion paradigm, school and college spaces, private spaces and the home, intimacy and the senses, and cyber space.
