Foreword by Dr Tony Attwood.
For people with ASD, the stresses of coping with a world that often seems alien to them can frequently lead to depression. This book offers accessible and sensitive advice on how to manage depression and make positive steps towards recovery. It explores the aspects of everyday life that can cause people with ASD to feel low, explains how this can escalate and looks at ways in which depression can be prevented. With a chapter on suicide and interviews with the author’s parents, the book provides real, practical solutions to a problem that is often overlooked.
