By explaing what ASD is and the effect it has on a person's life, this book provides formal and informal carers with an insight into what it means to live with autism spectrum disorder.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to parents and professionals and students alike. It is practical and highly readable. The personal and professional experience illuminates and makes the subject 'real'. This book's strength lies in its holistic approach and broad reach. Through individual case studies and support profiles, Edwards emphasises the individual and offers a truly person-centred approach. She highlights the importance of really listening to the person with autism, and puts the reader in the person with autism's shoes.
