One of the biggest fears of parents with children with autism is their looming adulthood and all that it entails. In this Second Edition of her lauded book Autism Adulthood , Susan Senator further tackles the challenges of adult life on the autism spectrum on the more severe end of the spectrum - those who cannot communicate for themselves, honestly discussing the complex decisions that await all parents and caregivers. To help parents find the guidance they need to provide fruitful lives for their autistic loved ones' and the support they themselves need, Senator shares her own family's personal story about her son, Nat, and his struggles and triumphs as an adult with severe autism.

Autism Adulthood features interviews with parents, caregivers, researchers, and professionals. Each vignette reveals firsthand a family's needs and goals--the circumstances, thought processes, and unique solutions. Sharing the wisdom that emerges from parents' and self-advocates' experiences, Senator adds her own observations and conclusions based on her long-term familiarity and understanding of autism. Told in Senator's trademark warm, approachable style, Autism Adulthood , Second Edition paints a vivid and thought-provoking picture of many people grappling with grown-up, real-life autism. Senator's is the only book of its kind, as real families share their stories and their creative solutions.
