Autism and Enablement : Occupational Therapy Approaches to Promote Independence for Adults with Autism Paperback
Adults with Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC) or a suspected diagnosis often have hidden needs that go unmet by public services.
This book describes and analyses the Kent ASC enablement approach, a short-term intervention led by occupational therapy to promote people with ASC becoming more self-aware and self-sufficient outside of public services. Designed to teach adults with ASC strategies for controlling their sensory, motor-processing and social-communication needs and preferences, this person-centred approach gives them greater self-management over their lives.
The book also provides an overview of a range of both professional and self-help tools and technologies which can be used by adults with ASC to increase independence and wellbeing.
Case-studies demonstrate the transformative effects of enablement on daily life for adults with ASC.
The book also provides recommendation for building on the enablement approach.
