Abstract:
  • The book aims to review what is known about adults with autism in terms of their social functioning and educational and occupational status. Focusing mainly on the problems experienced by high functioning people with autism, and those working with and caring for them, the book offers practical ways of dealing with their difficulties. Each chapter makes use of clinical case material to illustrate the kinds of problems faced and ways in which they may be overcome. Accounts from people with autism are included and links with psychiatric illness in later life are explored. It also includes a chapter on the differences between autism and Asperger syndrome.
