  • Up-to-date and accessible information on the nature and affects of Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
  • A detailed chronology of legislation across disciplines
  • Recommendations on family issues surrounding the care and education of those with ASD
  • Possible intervention programs
  • Appropriate strategies for use in care settings, education settings, and at home

Based on years of experience, this resource offers a range of strategies for all those working with or caring for adolescents and adults with ASD.
