Stella Waterhouse is a writer and therapist who has worked children and adults with a variety of learning differences since the late 1960’s.
In the mid 1980s Stella worked at a residential home for approximately 40 adults with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD), where she became Deputy Principal.
In the 1990’s Stella set out to write a short book on the role of anxiety in autism., which at that time received little attention. Her research led her to investigate the causes of ASD as well as role of sensory disorders - particularly those of an auditory or visual nature.
The original ‘short’ book evolved into a much larger project and has so far spawned two full length books including A Positive Approach to Autism - Jessica Kingsley Publishers, plus a series of short books for parents and teachers all of which are currently available as e-books.
Short books include:
Why Does He Do That?
A Survival Guide
The Problem is Understanding
Whoops! A Guide to Dyspraxia
Stella is currently completing her new series The Autism Code.
