Description

Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum

An essential guidebook for parents with teenagers on the autism spectrum

Adolescence can be a difficult time for everyone, but for parents of teenagers on the autism spectrum it is particularly difficult. Parents need to protect their children from the dangers of an environment that is not always understanding of their disease, and provide them with skills and support so that they can live as independently as possible. Using clear examples, practical advice and helpful insights, Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum offers strategies to help children of all abilities through the changes of the teenage years and prepare them for adulthood. Topics covered include:

  • How to help teenagers understand puberty and hygiene
  • The specific health risks of adolescence such as seizures and depression
  • Preparing for life after secondary school
  • Teenage emotions, sexuality, appropriate relationships and dating.
