This book explores the link between autism and eating disorders through testimonies from practitioners, service users and carers. Combining research findings, case studies and first-hand accounts, it provides insights into how individuals on the autism spectrum can be supported towards full recovery from an eating disorder.

Edited by the lead Clinical Psychologist at the Maudsley Eating Disorder National Service, informed by their team’s research, chapters focus on the unique issues arising when autism and eating disorders coexist.

The contributors suggest treatment adaptations from a multi-disciplinary perspective, and touch more broadly on the topic of poor mental health outcomes for autistic individuals, and how these might be improved.
