Support for Individuals with ASD
In her new book Providing Practical Support for People with Autism Spectrum Disorder: Supported Living in the Community, Denise Edwards discusses the important elements of supporting individuals with autism spectrum disorders (organization, communication, interpretation, social interaction, and health) as well as social networks, employment, and care plans. The author uses case studies throughout the book, along with examples of her own experiences with her son John, who is a 25-year-old with Asperger's syndrome. Further reading and a list of useful organizations are provided after the conclusion. To learn more about this informative book, check it out at CeDIR today!
