Asperger Syndrome and Adolescence

Practical Solutions for School Success

Autism Society Award Winner!

Help your child/student transition to middle/high school and experience success at school! The middle school years and the transitions to middle and high school pose challenges for all students. But for students with high-functioning autism the transition can be traumatic, leading to a downward emotional spiral and even depression. This comprehensive book starts with an overview of those characteristics of autism that make adolescence particularly challenging and difficult. The centerpiece of the book is a look at evidence-based strategies and supports for a successful school experience for students with ASD at the middle and secondary levels. The book includes a transition checklist that will help ensure that all aspects of the transition process are addressed.

Customer Review: Nnaz - Very insightful book...with many good tips for middle schoolers. Often, we focus on elementary schoolers, and must remember how difficult it is to transition into middle school. Glad I got it

Customer Review: RedAunt - So much information becomes outdated or obsolete, but I can tell you, since I'm reading this book while we are developing a middle-to-high-school transition plan for our daughter, it's indispensable. Everything that applies to our daughter and her situation is still spot-on, even in this 12-year-old book.

Customer Review: Tami A Goldstein - When my daughter Heather was diagnosed at 13 there were few books or experts on the subject of autism and sensory processing in school. This book was invaluable, it gave sound resonable recommendations for accomodations for success within the school environment. It was one of the resources I still talk about. My daughter is 25 now and has functioing recovery and lives independently. She drives and holds down a job. Read about our journey in "Coming Through the Fog"[...] and see what is was like for the child going to a school environemnt each day before supports and the difference after.
