Autism and related disorders affect almost every area of an individual's functioning. Yet little has been written on the outcome of autism in adult life, particularly for adults who are of high ability but who continue to be handicapped by their social, communication and behavioral difficulties.
Autism and Asperger Syndrome reviews what is known about adults with autism in terms of their social functioning and educational and occupational status. Focusing on the problems experienced by people with autism and ways of overcoming them this new edition has been completely updated to take account of the latest research in the field and includes an additional chapter on the differentiation between autism and Asperger Syndrome. It will be widely welcomed by professionals and those caring for people with autism.
