Later childhood and adolescence can pose unique challenges for people with autism and their families. This volume presents practical recommendations for clinicians and educators by featuring case studies and an in-depth assessment form. It also provides guidance and suggestions for supporting positive behaviour, communication, and social skills and managing issues related to mental and physical health. The book addresses issues of accessing services and planning the transition process, which will be of particular interest to parents of children with ASD.
