Estimated to affect just over 1 per cent of the adult population in the UK - some 700,000 individuals - autism is still persistently viewed as a disorder or impairment - but, this concept needs to be challenged. Written by a university lecturer with several years' experience in the field, this book presents an up-to-date overview of autism and Asperger syndrome, and comments on the realities of adult life including further and higher education, employment, dating and parenthood. For autistic children, teenagers and adults, their families and friends, and any professionals interested in autism. Topics include:


Terminology and what's preferred
Common myths and stereotypes
Diagnosis and related issues
Tips for undiagnosed adults
Understanding how autism impacts on the individual
Sensory issues
Transition into adulthood
Friendships and intimate relationships
The Criminal Justice System - what happens when autistic people break the law


In this sensitive and insightful book, Dr Luke Beardon asserts that there are many hugely intelligent, empathic, kind, caring, loyal and skilled autistic individuals - so it's time to treat them as such and respect their differences.
