Description

Survival Strategies for People on the Autism Spectrum is an accessible and practical self-help guide for people with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), written by an author who himself experiences the challenges and behavioural traits associated with ASDs. Fleisher's comprehensive guide gives advice and practical suggestions on how people with ASDs can manage daily life and independence successfully. From how to use electrical appliances safely to preparing for a journey using public transport, the author covers a wide range of everyday situations. His fascination with mathematics informs some of his thoughts about simple domestic tasks, such as putting on a shirt and tie, and his observations of the world at large. Survival Strategies will be an invaluable source of advice and reassurance for people with ASDs across a wide age range. It also gives important insights for relatives and friends of people on the autism spectrum and for professionals working with them in an educational or therapeutic capacity.
