 Full Description: 
This book is co-authored by a psychologist and the parent of a young adult. It is written as a follow-up to their earlier book “Overcoming Autism,” which discussed the issues of young children. An excerpt from autismshop.com's description of this book:

"Growing Up on the Spectrum....provides effective interventions for immediately helping your older child. Those who fought their way successfully out of the silence and loneliness of early autism are now ready for a new guide that recognizes their growth, celebrates their desire to become independent and successful young adults, and provides the next logical step on this lifelong journey.”

The book’s 15 chapters are broken into the following six sections:
- Section I Getting Started (Introduction + “Terms, Interventions, and Techniques”)

- Section II Making and Maintaining Good Friendships (Introduction + 4 chapters, for example: “Outings and Get-togethers” and “Dealing with Bullying and Peer Pressure”)

- Section III Making and Maintaining Successful Romantic Relationships (Introduction + 2 chapters: “Dating” and “Sex”)

- Section IV Making School Successful (Introduction + 2 chapters: “Middle and High School: Supported Independence” and “College”)

- Section V Beyond the College Years (Introduction + 3 chapters, for example: “Jobs” and “Legal Planning”)

- Section VI Improving Daily Life (Introduction + 4 chapters, for example: “Walking Out the Door Looking Good” and “Managing Modern Technology”)
