This is a terrific book for young adults on the autism spectrum
This is a terrific book for young adults on the autism spectrum and for their parents and anyone who works with or cares about them as well. In a straightforward, thoughtful and very helpful style, Ms. Soraya looks at some of the problems that can interfere with someone on the spectrum's ability to live a rich and independent life, and she offers extremely useful advice about how to address these difficulties. She does a lovely job of integrating her own experiences with professional advice, and her wonderful examples of how she and others have managed both the obstacles and the adventures of life "on the spectrum" are heartwarming as well as terrific models for readers. As I read, I found myself thinking about my work as a psychotherapist with a number of young adults who struggled with these issues, some without ever having been diagnosed. I wish I had had this book to offer them. I will certainly use it in the future!
