Leaving school can bring about both positive and negative feelings for teenagers with ASD. On one hand it is a big relief, particularly if they were bullied or didn’t have many friends. On the other hand, it can be anxiety-provoking not knowing what is going to happen next. Some teenagers know for certain they want to go on to college and university. Others have no idea what they want to do. Many feel burned out from school and consequently end up feeling highly demotivated, not wanting to do much at all. Teenagers with ASD may be clever and wise, yet immature, unable to communicate properly and lacking friendships. This guide looks at the first few years after school has ended, with insight and advice for individuals and parents.

    Alis Rowe is amazing and so inspiring she writes with such truth!
    All Alis books help me to understand my condition and how to cope, without Alis books I would feel less alone.
    Alis books are easy to understand as they have big writing and lots of visuals I’m an aspie myself so this is an amazing find.
    Alis information comes from a real place as Alis has Aspergers.
    in This book Alis gives ideas and advice on how Aspergers affects the age group from 16-18 years old once diganoised and the problems this age group have at this time. there are some great diagrams in the book on how parents and the child themselves can help understand themselves better.
    I bought this book to help me understand myself better at this time when I was this age and it all makes sense and now i understand why I struggle so much
    Another great book Alis
    Thank you again

    Truly brilliant! As an NT mum to an ASD daughter, I find it challenging to relate to parts of the book but my lovely daughter tells me, with a loving cheeky grin, that that has nothing to do with the NT/ASD bit….but more with the fact that I am old enough to have forgotten how it was to be a teenager. Humpf!

    Excellent short snappy and visual book which helps explain how teens on the spectrum think and how they may need assistance from their family . Clearly written with great visual explanations too. Very helpful.

    Alis’ Facebook posts for the Girl with the Curly Hair Project have helped my family and me more than any other book or guidance in helping to support and understand our Aspergers daughter. This latest book is excellent for us and for her as we start the scary journey and transition to independent life and living post-A levels. Thank you, Alis Rowe 😎

    I have read most of Alis Rowe’s books, which I love and always find helpful. However, with a child on the cusp of transition, I found this book really helpful. As a parent, we automatically have a path for our child mapped out in our mind, but this book challenges that and invites us to consider a range of options for our own child. It also helps us to consider other life skills which we need to teach our child, in preparation for greater independence. Most of all, what it teaches us is to broaden our expectations and REALLY consider what is best for our child, and not best for us as parents. A great lesson. Thank you Alis, once again for an insightful and thought provoking read.

    I wasn’t sure what would happen after school now that I’m coming to the end of it, but Alis’s book has really settled some of my anxieties. Definitely one to read over throughout the next year as I decide what I’m going to do next.
