Summary This trailblazing guide equips practitioners to help clients with autism live well, using adaptable solution-focused methods. It shows how to approach autism in a positive, respectful way, and to understand clients' ways of thinking so you can effectively guide them to find their own solutions. To help clients with autism think differently about their future, practitioners need to think differently about autism ... Solution-focused practice is founded on a firm belief that the full potential of every human being can be realized. This concise, pragmatic guide explains how the practice can be effectively adapted to help clients on the autism spectrum find solutions to their problems, by addressing autism not as a disability but as a different way of thinking. The first section is a helpful introduction to how solution-focused practitioners can gain an understanding of autism by viewing it from a 'different culture' perspective; the second part offers handy rules and tips for applying knowledge respectfully and creating successful conversations with clients. People with autism often feel let down by social support services. This forward-thinking book is a vital resource for helping clients feel welcome and empowered in helping settings and beyond.
