Travis shares his vision for what real social skills coaching looks like and guides the reader to help them understand what would help their adult child best. Here is an excerpt from "Autism Where Is The IEP For The Rest Of My Life?"
"In high school I received lots of help and support from teachers and friends that were there by design but the day I walked across the stage to get my diploma changed my life because it took away the constant.
Gone were the kids I had grown up with and went all through school with. Gone were the teachers who worked so hard to teach me, mold, and guide me. Gone were the extra-curricular activities that I was able to participate in. The activities that allowed me to spend time hanging out with my friends.
I did not have any idea that those same kids would not be my friend any longer the day after I received my high school diploma. Everything I knew was gone the day I walked across the stage and I am still trying to get it back.
Getting help with autism as an adult is next to impossible. Countless emails and phone calls to state agencies and government office go ignored and unreturned. I am told there are no social skills services available for adults who live on the spectrum."
