Abstract/Book Review

Autistic spectrum conditions (ASCs) are a group of conditions which impair aspects of social communication and interaction. Genetic and epigenetic influences in utero and relational experiences all contribute to the development of the child who goes on to be diagnosed as having an ASC (Crittenden et al., 2014). Our clinical team works in London, UK, with families of children and adults who have received a diagnosis of an autistic spectrum condition (ASC) and those with other neurodevelopmental disorders or learning disabilities. This article describes some of our learning and clinical work over the past 15 years with this patient group.
