The BASICS College Curriculum presents a hands-on approach to learning essential independence and life skills for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This book helps young adults to explore their identity and self-perception and encourages them to consider their personal characteristics and strengths.
Ideal as a textbook for ASD college programs run by disability support services and suitable for students to use for self-study, it focuses on reframing the student's perception of ASD by looking at personal experiences, the language of diagnosis, and ASD in the media and it encourages students to identify their strengths in social, group or work settings. Each lesson provides valuable information and advice for the student, useful diagrams, practical exercises and workbook components that can be filled in at home or in class, and self-assessment tools.
