An essential guide for any professionals working with autistic children and young adults, this book provides expert insights which need to be considered by professionals, parents and autistic people alike. It covers key themes such as anxiety and wellbeing, transition into adulthood, sexuality, intersectionality, and many more.

A unique blend of first-hand experience, parental guidance and professional advice is provided from prominent figures in the autism field to offer you an overview of the important issues of today, to help you understand and better support autistic young people.


This ambitious book brings together a diverse and vastly experienced group of neurotypical and neurodivergent commentators offering observations and advice based on lived experience and research. I particularly welcome the inclusion of the often neglected topics of autism, ethnicity, and culture, the development of IT, and the justice system.

Effective support: importantly in line with autistic perspectives, current research, current thinking, and a well put together practical guide that considers autism and intersectionality, gender diversity, sexuality, well-being, attachment, mental fitness and so much more.

The knowledge within this book is immense. It successfully captures key issues ... research, effective interventions; coupled with insights from lived experiences that highlight the need for intersectionality. This is a valuable book that I would recommend that everyone with an interest in Autism reads.
