From childhood services to adult provision, the needs of an individual develop and change, yet the literature addressing specific adult requirements is scarce. This volume sets out to fill this gap and provides practical help and guidance specifically for those caring for the growing recognised population of adults with autism. Issues of theory and practice from both local and international perspectives are included. Subsequent chapters analyse the implications arising from thought and behaviour inflexibility with emphasis on the management of transition and bereavement. Models for practice in employment and further education and also pharmacological and educational approaches to mental health problems, epilepsy and challenging behaviour are concluded by a chapter which develops many themes of this publication as the basis for a practitioner training programme in residential settings. An essential guide for all those concerned with the care and well being of adults with autism including parents, researchers, practitioners and community care workers.
