The late teens and twenties are exciting times, but filled with potential pitfalls as young people navigate the transition into independent adult life. This handbook is filled with the information that young people with ASD say they want (and need) to know about alcohol and drugs, social media and online safety, relationship types and boundaries, safe sex, stress and emotional health, and independent living. It includes real life examples, coping strategies and practical tips to help young adults with ASD stay safe while living life to the full. Informal and frank, this will be a go-to guide for young people on the autism spectrum.
