Good Autism Practice (GAP) was set up in 2000 to meet the needs of practitioners and parents living or working with individuals with autism spectrum of all ages.
This new reader celebrates 10 successful years of the GAP Journal and brings together a selection of papers published in the journal during that time. The papers have been selected to represent the writings of parents and carers, people on the autism spectrum and professionals working across all services and sectors. Papers have been chosen which cover issues that are still current today in relation to practice and suggest strategies to enhance the quality of life of all concerned.
Some of the most poignant and powerful papers have been written by people on the autism spectrum. They have the ability to vividly convey how autism affects their lives and how the response of services and agencies can be helpful or a barrier to their well-being and success.
The reader also contains an index to all articles published in GAP during its first 10 years.
GAP is published in partnership with the University of Birmingham, Autism West midlands and Autism Cymru.
"This special edition marks a decade of achievement and we look forward to the next 10 years."
