Abstract

Purpose
The area of trauma in autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) is an important area given the substantial rates of abuse endured by these individuals. However, there are issues with the identification of trauma, understanding how it is perceived, and manifested. The paper aims to discuss this issue.
Design/methodology/approach
The limited research regarding trauma in ASD is reviewed and gaps are identified.
Findings
The key findings from the relevant literature are discussed.
Practical implications
Practical suggestions are outlined for more effective identification of trauma in individuals with ASD.
Originality/value
To date, there has been relatively little research on trauma and ASD. This paper emphasises the urgent need for attention in this area.
