Autism and Loss
December 13, 2012
By Autism Society
People with autism often experience difficulty in understanding and expressing their emotions and often react to losses in ways that carers do not understand. In order to provide effective support, carers need to have the knowledge, skills and appropriate resources to work through these emotional reactions with them. Autism and Loss is a complete resource that covers different types of loss, including bereavement, loss of friends or staff, loss of home or possessions and loss of health.
Rooted in the latest research on loss and autism, yet written in an accessible style, it is full of useful, fully photocopiable factsheets and practical tools that provide carers with authoritative, tried and tested guidance.
This is an essential resource for professional and informal carer working with people with autism who are coping with any kind of loss.
