©2014 By Andrew Schlegelmilch . A straight-talking guide to parenting teenagers on the autism spectrum, this book offers a school psychologist's perspective on coping with the issues that can arise during the difficult adolescent years. Andrew Schlegelmilch draws on his experiences working as Head Psychologist at a college preparatory school for teens on the spectrum to provide savvy advice on common parenting challenges including falling grades, adolescent tantrums, relationships with authority figures and peers, sex and sexuality, social media safety, mental health issues, and the transition to life after high school. Integral to the discussion is how to set realistic expectations and encourage independence in ways that work for both the child and the rest of the family, as well as how to get the most out of the professionals that you work with.
