Children and adolescents with ASD often struggle to cope in a world which does not make a lot of sense to them, especially the social world. It is not easy for them to understand what others understand implicitly or to cope with the uncertainty and change which is part and parcel of everyday life. These challenges give rise to emotions, which they typically struggle to understand, let alone communicate to others, and become manifested in their behaviour. It is important that those who work with children and adolescents with ASD can make sense of the experience of the young person in order to help them become more confident in managing in a non-ASD world.
Those working and offering support in the following settings: Education (e.g. teachers, SENCOs, college tutors, mentors, special needs assistants), Health (GPs, Paediatric workers, Health Visitors, School Nurses), Social Care (social workers, family support workers, children’s centre workers), and Community & Voluntary services.
