Each chapter makes use of clinical case material to illustrate the kinds of problems faced and ways in which they may be overcome. In addition, first-hand accounts from people with autism on their experiences as adults are included. Links with psychiatric illness in later life are also explored." "Autism aims to inform professionals and carers of what can be achieved by people with autism in adult life and how to cope with their difficulties, and to help those living with autism to achieve greater fulfillment of their potential."--BOOK JACKET."
