This book evaluates how autism is experienced and addressed in four areas critical to the developmental phase of adulthood: self-awareness, individuality, comprehensive support systems, and the dissemination of information and expanded education. The editors present comprehensive coverage of new developments in the field of adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), particularly with regards to the updating of diagnostic criteria in the DSM-5 and an increased level of interest in research on adults with ASD. Contributors also make recommendations regarding services that should be provided to people with ASD based on recognition of their needs, the frequent lack of accessibility to relevant services, and an understanding of how a person's living situation both influences and is influenced by the way they conduct their lives. Among the topics discussed: The distinctive stage of Emerging Adulthood in individuals with ASD Late diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder Sexuality and romantic relationships among people with ASD Parents, siblings, and communities of individuals with ASD Cultural-demographic influences on life choices among people with ASD Adult women on the high-functioning autism spectrum The experience of academia and employment for people with ASD Autism in Adulthood is a unique resource for professionals, clinicians, researchers and caregivers that emphasizes both theoretical and practical information regarding ASD in the critical adult stage of life.

At the preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary levels, the needs of learners with high-functioning autism and Asperger Syndrome (HFA/AS) are highly variable. Assessment of an individual child's needs is critically important for planning effective treatment. Treatment, in turn, must address the comprehensive needs of each learner. This is a formidable task that requires tremendous planning and the expertise of many professionals working jointly with parents. Practical Solutions for Educating Young Children with High-Functioning Autism and Asperger Syndrome is designed to help parents and professionals address the unique challenges of these early learners by putting into place various kinds of support and assistance to ensure successful long-term outcomes. Further, to highlight practical applications, in each chapter of the book vignettes of “real” children illustrate the ideas and strategies introduced, culminating in two in-depth case studies that synthesize how the strategies described in the book can be used in combination to maximize success.
