Autism with Severe Learning Difficulties by Rita Jordan

Book Description

This book is aimed at those care for and/or educate the large group of individuals with autism who also have severe learning difficulties. Its focus is children and young people but many of the issues and suggestions are equally applicable to those who are working with adults with similar problems. It is a practical guide to effective treatment and care, showing through examples how behaviour that is seen should be understood and how to build on strengths and reduce problems. The approach uses techniques from a variety of programmes and covers important topics such as the implications of the dual diagnosis; characteristic behaviour and development; fostering social interaction; educational provision; understanding, preventing and managing challenging behaviour; support for parents and sexuality and the transition to adulthood.
