From one of the most well-known authors in the area of transition comes a book focused on youth with autism. Together with two community-based professionals, Paul Wehman discusses how considerations for transition are different for young adults with autism and presents proven strategies for successful planning. Adolescents with autism change physically in similar ways to their peers, but there can be a very large discrepancy between the complex social behavior of a typical adolescent and that of someone with autism. This book addresses the many concerns that face educators, families, and students with autism themselves as they prepare to enter adulthood. Transition is a multifaceted issue for adolescents with autism, triggering questions about employment, higher education, benefits, living in the community, socialization, communication, and general skills for adult living. This book explores each of these topics in depth, offering insights from current research and, most importantly, strategies and practical advice for every teacher, transition specialist, counselor, parent, or other professional that supports a teenager with an autism spectrum disorder. Using case studies of three adolescents with autism, issues and solutions are approached from a more personal and accessible perspective.
