Format: Paperback
School is meant to prepare anyone for the life ahead, but autistic students require a special approach. "The Autism Transition Guide: Planning the Journey From School to Adult Life" is a guide for educators and parents who want to best prepare their autistic child for the more complex nuances of adult life. Housing, employment, and other topics are discussed in this informative help book for parents and their autistic children. "The Autism Transition Guide" as such is a strong consideration for parents of these special children.
