Authors: Michael J. Dochniak (Coralville, IA, USA) 
Book Description:
Do you have insight into the cause and therapeutic treatment for disorders that are present in some individual’s on the autism spectrum? Acquiring a patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) may be the best way to communicate your idea and gain monetary compensation. Before submitting your idea, though, you’ll need to learn if it has already been disclosed. Since 1987, hundreds of patents have been granted by the USPTO in an effort to help alleviate some of the disabling symptoms present in individuals on the autism spectrum. To better understand this, Michael J. Dochniak has written this book to provide an easy-to-read summary of patents directed at autism spectrum disorders. Within the patent summaries are inventor profiles and news articles that are both informative and enlightening. Impactful inventors include James Cassily, William Louis Cleveland, David Eagleman, Bernard Rimland, and Patricia Rodier. Prominent organizations include the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Boston Scientific, Columbia University, IBM, Johns Hopkins, and MIT. Furthermore, you’ll discover a sampling of unique pending applications in Chapter Ten and several disputed rejected-applications in Chapter Twenty. The Autism Patents and Beyond is a quintessential review of creative people who invent — or are trying to invent — therapeutic interventions for autism spectrum disorders. (Imprint: Nova)

Book Review

“A monumental piece of research to assemble all these patents related to autism.” - Temple Grandin, Spokesperson on autism, Author of Thinking in Pictures and The Autistic Brain

“The exponential rise in autism diagnoses among children in the United States in recent decades has prompted much activity in many areas of research and commerce as reflected in the rise of autism-related patents. Patent coordinator and author Michael Dochniak has done a superb job of gathering these patents together and explaining their origins and functions. For anyone who's been following the autism epidemic and its impact on all areas of our society, I highly recommend Autism Patents & Beyond.” - Rita Shreffler, Autism File Executive Editor
