Review:

Christine Breakey provides useful guidelines and practical advice on teaching young adults successfully and confidently, emphasizing the development of resources and practical skills for use specifically in FE colleges. The author covers all the key areas and offers strategies and solutions for communicating effectively, helping students to manage transition, and understanding and minimising the cause of ASC behaviours as well as teaching social skills and ASC self-awareness. The Autism Spectrum and Further Education will be a vital resource for professionals in FR institutions who have to meet the needs of young adults with ASCs. (Link, Autism-Europe)

This book will be invaluable to anyone who works with autistic people in mainstream high schools, colleges, universities and in the workplace. Yes I do mean autistic people. Christine Breakey uses the term that many autistic people themselves want used. Their autism is an integral part of their being, not a bolt-on, and must be viewed as such this book is a must. One can hear the author's sensible, calm voice coming through clearly and I found it very inspiring. (Good Autism Practice)
