Autism can exist with any level of general ability, but it often occurs with additional severe learning difficulties. Rita Jordan has a lifetime of experience of working with individuals with autism and in this practical guide she uses techniques from a variety of programmes to outline how to develop the strengths of individual children while reducing problem behaviour.

Covering topics such as the implications of the dual diagnosis, characteristic behaviour and development, fostering social interaction, understanding, preventing and managing challenging behaviour as well as how to support parents and how to deal with sexuality and the transition to adulthood this is a complete guide. This book will be invaluable to parents and key workers.

Justifiably heralded as a 'pioneering' book... The main message is that specific teaching and care approaches must take account of both autism and learning styles. - Times Educational Supplement

The book is practical, easy to read and interspersed with illustrative vignettes. - Autism

This book sparkles. Rita Jordan's style is warm and accessible and therapists working in this area may use it in counselling parents, and recommend it to families... The book is threaded with practical suggestions and new ideas to take into schools. - Bulletin of the Royal College of Speech & Language Therapists
