Survival Strategies for People on the Autism Spectrum.


Survival strategies for people on the autism spectrum.

Fleisher, Marc.

Jessica Kingsley Pub.


195 pages




In 1978, when he was 11 years old, British native Fleisher was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. Now a public speaker on autism and the author of a previous, autobiographical book on the topic, he offers a self-help guide for teenagers and adults with autism, their families and friends, social workers, care managers, and teachers. The text is built on the premise that having a positive mental attitude and the ability to break problems down into smaller constructive achievable tasks is key to making progress in life. Coverage includes an overview of autism, the vital role of communication, independent living, socializing, higher education, sport as an aid, becoming a confident presenter about autism and other topics, and dealing with uncertainty.
