from the foreword by Jane Thierfeld-Brown, Ed.D, Director, College Autism Spectrum, and Assistant Clinical Professor, Yale Child Study, Yale University
The authors are respectful and informative in explaining concepts that may be socially confusing and cloaked in non-verbal cues for young adults on the spectrum. This manual fills a gap in resources and, for that, we parents and young adults on the spectrum are grateful.
from the foreword by Aaron Schatzman, young adult with ASD
Sensitive and hard to discuss issues (often glossed over for individuals with ASD) such as dating, measuring the stages of relationships, sex, and drinking are covered frankly, bluntly, and thoroughly. While of the utmost importance to everyone, these tough discussions affect young adults on the spectrum differently, often times due to the awkwardness of the topic, and the social faux pas that happen during everyday spectrum living.
