This book will allow anyone who lives or works with children with Autism to see the world as they do, and develop strategies for managing and understanding it effectively.
It peers through the "Autism lens", allowing us to effect change in terms of the way we deal with autism as a society and in education. It delivers evidence-based support and strategies that enable us to develop young people's abilities to interact with the social world, removing much of the anxiety that often accompanies it.
