Abstract

This book explores how everyday transitions and change can become a challenge for people on the autism spectrum and how such situations can cause confusion and anxiety, before proposing strategies that the authors suggest will reduce such challenges in daily life. The book presents a primarily parental narrative, although including case studies from those on the spectrum such as that of one of the authors. Although stating that the authors have no intention of changing the autistic person, they claim that their aim is to help people on the autism spectrum to ‘cope better’ in neurotypical environments. This common parental approach frames the narrative of the authors regarding experiences of change, assumed by the authors as containing many potential benefits to all.
