Making Friends is the inspiring story of how having access to a youth club or social group has changed the lives of many people with autism, from one of social isolation, exclusion, anxiety and depression to one of inclusion, friendships and fun!
It is a must read for anyone on the spectrum or with associated conditions who is feeling isolated and alone!
