This is an indispensable resource for anyone working with young autistic people. There are so few programmes and resources designed specifically to support young autistic people as they make the transition to secondary school - until now. This handbook describes STEP-ASD, a new programme developed by clinical psychologists at the world-leading Great Ormond Street Hospital, demonstrated to help teachers and professionals ease the transition process for these young people.

This book is essential reading for teachers, special needs coordinators, clinicians and parents caring for children with autism spectrum disorders facing the sometimes challenging transition from primary to secondary education. It is clear, knowledgeable and insightful; and contains a wealth of resources and materials that make up a "toolbox" to help practitioners and parents support children through this process. I cannot recommend it more highly.
