“The chapters cover a continuum of topics, beginning with the overarching introductory chapters, then progressing across developmental periods ranging from secondary education to late adulthood. Each chapter is well annotated with extensive references. Key points in each chapter are highlighted with well-constructed tables and charts that help reinforce important points….Clinical vignettes are included that enhance the text and illustrate the individual interventions described by the authors….The coordination among the various chapter authors is evident….The book is well organized, flows cohesively, and is well referenced.”

Journal of Psychiatric Practice


“The authors, renowned researchers and clinicians, present what can easily be called a pioneering book that casts light on issues involved in the transition from adolescence to young adulthood for people with autism spectrum disorders (ASD)....With a half million autistic children expected to enter young adulthood in the next 10 years, this timely volume leads the way in preparing clinical practitioners and family members with evidence-based and promising interventions to support young adults with ASD through that transition. I highly recommend this book as the must-have reference for anyone in the mental health professions, graduate students in psychology and social science disciplines, as well as family members of loved ones with ASD. Highly acclaimed, this book has quickly become the premier reference for understanding the needs of young adults with ASD, and the evidence-based and promising interventions that address those needs such that the transition into adulthood is successful. *****!”

Doody's Review Service


“Each chapter gives an excellent overview of the theories and interventions currently in use, the evidence to support their use, and potential areas for future research and improvement. Frequent case examples detail these approaches in practice. This is a valuable resource for students contemplating working with people with ASD, practicing professionals, and family and friends of people with ASD. Highly recommended. All levels/libraries.”

Choice Reviews


“Tincani and Bondy—who collectively have some 60 years of experience in the field of autism—bring together in one place the wisdom of experts from a broad range of disciplines that touch the lives of adults with ASD. The book meets its goal of providing clarity about ways to build skills for employment, independent living, and other areas that help one live a happy life. The case studies are a rich source of practical information that will be of great utility to readers. Anyone who works with adolescents and adults on the autism spectrum will find this book invaluable.”

“At last! A one-stop shop for those interested in the issues affecting adolescents and adults with ASD. As someone who has worked with this population for over 45 years, I know how truly important these issues are to individuals and families. This volume provides state-of-the-art knowledge from many of the field's leading researchers and practitioners. Coverage includes life transitions, community involvement, services, education, social relationships, recreation, aging, and more. I am impressed by the accessibility of the volume; the chapters are well organized and clearly written. This book is a 'must have' for clinicians, educators, and students entering the field.”

—Laura Schreibman, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus and Research Professor, Department of Psychology, University of California, San Diego


“Adults and adolescents with ASD have received far less attention than children, making this book especially needed and valuable. That the book accentuates evidence-based treatments and interventions makes it all the more useful. Instructors looking for a practitioner-friendly text for ASD adult-focused classes (e.g., transition planning for adults) will find excellent content here. Practitioners interested in up-to-date information and strategies for guiding postschool and adult planning will also be pleased with this resource.”

—Richard L. Simpson, EdD, Department of Special Education, University of Kansas
