This is an informative pack, giving practical examples of how people can better support young people with autistic spectrum disorder, writes Mark Houston. This guidance would be useful to anyone who works with autistic children.

The pack would be particularly useful to parents of autistic children struggling to understand their children’s behaviour and give them the correct support.

It gives the reader a clear insight into the ways in which autistic children view the world differently, but also strongly emphasises the fact that all autistic children are different so that services must always be adapted to the individual’s needs.

Mark Houston is a care leaver who was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome as a teenager.
