Stoddart, Burke and King have delved into the existing literature and have created a thoroughly documented text that will be valuable to clinicians seeking to provide support and interventions for adults on the mild end of the spectrum. The text looks at comorbid conditions as well as the issues individuals might be struggling with because of Asperger Syndrome. The authors note the lack of evidence based practices in treatments and provide information on complementary interventions.
Research in how autism presents across the lifespan is lacking and many clinicians lack the expertise in recognizing how undiagnosed mild autism presents in adults. This book is a good solution, regardless of what we call the condition.
