About Dr. Attwood
Dr. Tony Attwood is the world's foremost authority on the subject of Asperger's Syndrome - a developmental disorder generally defined as high-functioning autism.
Autism affects 1 child in 125 today.
Dr. Attwood-- a practicing clinical psychologist in Australia who has worked for the last three and a half decades with thousands of individuals with Asperger's, their families and professionals--will speak on improving social understanding and strategies to manage anxiety, anger, sadness, bullying, sexuality and being different, among other relevant subjects.
Dr. Attwood's common-sense approach, prodigious knowledge, and empathetic style combine to draw enthusiastic audiences wherever he lectures. He has drawn rave reviews because of his "practical and achievable strategies for intervention and education," according to Clinical Child Psychology and Psychiatry Journal, and his achievement of "describing the current state of scientific knowledge in accessible and understandable language."
Dr. Attwood has written numerous books and produced many DVDs on Asperger's that have sold well over half a million copies. His book, The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome, is a top-seller in the field.
