Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum


Adolescence can be a difficult time for everyone, but for parents of teens on the autism spectrum it’s particularly nerve-wracking.  Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum offers strategies for helping children, whatever their ability level, through the changes of the teenage years, and to prepare them for adulthood.  Using clear examples, practical advice and supportive insights, it covers:
Preparing for life after secondary school
The specific health risks of adolescence, such as seizures and depression
Teenage emotions, puberty, sexuality, appropriate relationships and dating
Chantal Sicile-Kira has been involved with Autism Spectrum Disorders for nearly 20 years and is the author of Autism Spectrum Disorders, which was named Outstanding Book of the Year by the Autism Society of America.

These are some quotes about the book: -
“This book provides a wealth of information on just about everything a parent or teacher will need.” – Temple Grandin, Ph. D.
“This is a very practical book which will help parents of adolescents on the autistic spectrum.” – The National Autistic Society
“Practical, shrewd and bracingly perceptive…essential reading for anyone interested in the complex interrelationship between autistic children and their parents.” – Douglas Kennedy
