This book has the power to change lives‘ Chris Packham

Imagine a world where an autistic person is included, engaged and cherished for how they are; a world which changes for autistic people, rather than changing the person.

What Works for Autistic Adults brings the conversation about inclusivity into the forefront and turns it on its head. Instead of modifying the autistic individual and making exceptions or special circumstances, Luke shows how the world can, should and must change to accommodate your needs or those of the autistic person you love, live or work with.

He identifies the aspects that impact on life most – partners, friends, work or college, and environment – and outlines the steps that can and should be taken by everyone involved to create an autism-friendly landscape and improve outcomes all round. Covering every setting, from social situations to office or other professional environments, and in all circumstances, Luke’s book shows how no-one should have to struggle to exist within the parameters of a world they don’t understand. What Works for Autistic Adults will give you the dialogue, tools and starting points to involve every loved one, family member or colleague as advocates for a world where you, or any other autistic adult, can truly flourish.

Reviews

This is an easily digestible distillation of how the world can be deliberately and fabulously shaped to make every adult autistic person's 'one life' the best it can possibly be. Words have the power to change minds and this book has the potential to change lives. A remarkable gift to the community.
