In 2016, the American Occupational
Therapy Association (AOTA) published Occupational Therapy Practice Guidelines
for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (AOTA 2016). It is part of a
series of practice guidelines published by AOTA. This book covers the state of
evidence on a multitude of interventions an occupational therapy practitioner
might use and is a “must read” for those who interact with persons on the
spectrum. To give just a taste of the valuable information in this book, I
summarize below the evidence on social narratives/Social Stories.
