This 2nd edition is expanded to provide the most up-to-date, practical approaches for professionals, as well as families, to support the increasing number of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) of all ages and levels who will be participating in every type of recreation program. The current understanding of ASD and its impact on recreation participation is offered from both the perspective of professionals and the important voice of those who live with ASD. Numerous exemplary programs are featured. New resources that make the development of supports more efficient and less time consuming are supplied throughout the book.

The authors have each worked in the field of autism for over twenty years. This experience, along with backgrounds in therapeutic recreation, special education, general education, and psychology, provide the foundation for the development of the concepts and approaches presented in Developing Leisure Time Skills for Persons with Autism. Phyllis Coyne, MS, has been an autism consultant to school districts for over twenty years. She is the co-author of three books on autism spectrum disorders. During this time, she has trained and consulted with thousands of staff and parents in effective techniques for supporting individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Previous to being an Autism Specialist and special education teacher, Phyllis worked in inclusive outdoor adventure recreation, coordinated a model demonstration project on recreation for adolescents with developmental disabilities, and was a Therapeutic Recreation consultant in North Carolina and Oregon. She has served on the Board of Directors of the National Therapeutic Recreation Society, the editorial board of the Journal of Leisurability, and the Leisure Committee of the Association for Persons with Severe Handicaps (TASH).
