Ten Rules for Ensuring People with Learning Disabilities and Those Who Are On The Autism Spectrum Develop ‘Challenging Behaviour’… and maybe what to do about it is a full colour, pocket-sized booklet that aims to spark thought and discussion on how we can better understand those on the autism spectrum and/or with learning difficulties and their needs.
Written in the ‘voice’ of someone with autism, this booklet directly addresses the many practices and assumptions that cause so many problems for children and adults with autism and learning difficulties and their family, friends and carers.
The ‘ten rules’ concept sets out to be deliberately provocative and is the first in a series that will address the topic of autism and how not to do things.
About the Author
Damian's interest in autism began when his son was diagnosed in 2005 as autistic at the age of two. Damian was also diagnosed with Asperger's in 2009 at the age of 36. Thanks to Damian's ability to present his views and insights from `inside' the autism spectrum so clearly, he is able to challenge many of the ideas held by society. Damian works part-time for the National Autistic Society (NAS) as Head of Autism Knowledge and Expertise (Adults and Community) and sits on the scientific and advisory committee for Research Autism. Damian currently teaches on the MA Education (Autism) programme at London South Bank University and is a consultant for the Transform Autism Education (TAE) project. In 2017 Damian joined the Tizard Centre, University of Kent as a part-time Lecturer to coincide with his work for the NAS.
