Overview

Published in association with the Estia Centre, this guide provides a comprehensive introduction to working with people who have autism spectrum conditions (ASC). The book addresses the needs of people with ASC across the lifespan and range of intellectual functioning. Though the content is grounded in evidence-based practice and recent research, the text is intended to be as practical as possible, offering insight into the everyday lives of people with ASC and how staff can best support them.
