"This step-by-step manual explains how to adapt CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) approaches to OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) for young people and adults on the autism spectrum. It outlines why there is the need to often adapt treatment for autistic people and includes detailed guidance on each phase of the approach. An assessment of OCD co-occurring with autism is described with suggestions about how to ensure that both treatment, and the next steps are as accessible as possible." - BOOK JACKET
