Autism Spectrum Disorder (A Practical Approach at Home for Parents and Carers)

This excellent booklet published by Falkirk Council provides lots of useful information on Autism Spectrum Disorder.

People with Autism Spectrum Disorder are part of a distinctive group with common characteristics.  In order to assist individuals to learn and develop, it is crucial that those around them understand Autism Spectrum Disorder and assist the individual to develop by providing structured teaching. This includes organising the physical environment and developing schedules and work systems which incorporate the use of visual material to make expectations clear and explicit.
