Summary When making the transition from education to the workplace, young people with ASD can find their opportunities limited by their impaired prosody. With more resourcing now focused on transition programming for young people with ASD, this book offers an alternative therapy - by identifying the physical sensations of communication - to professionals. When making the transition to adulthood, young people with Autism Spectrum Disorder can find their opportunities limited by their impaired prosody. Through a program of evidence-based lessons and resources, this book helps to develop verbal and nonverbal skills essential to adult life, particularly in the context of looking for a job or social situations. It is a complete curriculum, covering everything from self-calming to fluency and conversational skills, and includes lesson plans, handouts, and homework. The program has been successfully used by the authors in their work with people on the autism spectrum and will be a life-changing resource for professionals as well as for parents and people on the autism spectrum wanting to improve their ability to communicate well.
