Autism: Understanding and Managing Anger



As anyone living in a family affected by autism will testify, children with autism can have a lot to contend with. While not naturally angrier than anyone else, the difficulties and uncertainties that they face in everyday life can at times be difficult to cope with. Many families affected by autism have to deal with angry outbursts or ‘meltdowns’.

This book – which is aimed at parents and carers of children with Asperger syndrome and high-functioning autism – talks about why children with autism become angry and some practical ways in which you can help, including preventing and managing anger; coping with meltdowns; and helping your child to manage their feelings.
