Professor Tony Attwood

Clinical Psychologist and Adjunct Professor at Griffith University, Queensland

Professor Tony Attwood is a clinical psychologist who has specialised in autism spectrum disorders since he qualified as a clinical psychologist in England in 1975. He works in private practice, and is also adjunct professor at Griffith University, Queensland, and senior consultant at the Minds and Hearts clinic in Brisbane. His book Asperger’s Syndrome: A Guide for Parents and Professionals has sold over 350 000 copies and has been translated into over twenty-five languages. His subsequent book, The Complete Guide to Asperger’s Syndrome, is the primary textbook on Asperger’s syndrome. They are both published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers.

This chapter will explain the defining characteristics of ‘Asperger’s syndrome’, a form of autism. The characteristics can change from early childhood to the adult years and vary according to gender and the person’s adaptations to the recognition of being different to peers.
