Excelling with Autism: Obtaining Critical Mass Using Deliberate Practice introduces a new way to optimise the progress of learners with ASD. Reaching critical mass helps learners apply information in new ways – spontaneous generalisation. This book is about doing things differently to positively impact individuals on the spectrum by supporting the development of critical mass in areas that are necessary for successful functioning in home, work, and community using the research-based elements of deliberate practice.

In this book, the four elements of deliberate practice - developing specific goals, ensuring focus, moving out of the comfort zone, and communicating outcomes - are applied to teaching social, communication, and daily living skills. Critical mass and the related science of deliberate practice will change the life course of individuals with ASD. Incorporating the elements of deliberate practice is a critical step toward helping individuals with ASD to reach their unlimited potential.
