    GREAT, GREAT, GREAT

    As a grandmother, learning your grandson has Autism is not an easy pill to swallow. I probably cried as much as my daughter. I am not sure why because I did not know that much or understand to much about Autism. I decided it was high time I start looking and learning. I went to the books available on Autism on Barnes and Noble. When I saw the words, "easy to understand," I thought, Bingo, that's for me.
    The author, Jack E. George knew exactly what I need to know. He wrote it, just as he promised, as clear and concise as easy to read so I could understand it. The first time I read it I understood. The second time I read it I understood and absorbed. I will read it again and then put it with my other books of gems because this book is a gem.
    When I read about some of the students that he taught in school it opened my eyes. I couldn't imagine my grandson doing some of these things. Then I realized it is all possible and I felt blessed that I have some knowledge as to what I should do in such situations.
    This is a book I strongly recommend to anyone and everyone that has anything and everything to do with a child who has Autism. This book is a treasure and I will keep it and refer to it over and over again. JM

    A Fascinating Read

    I read The Autism Handbook in one session. I started reading and I became glued, absorbed in the information, the characters, and the author. Since I am a native Spanish speaker I did not learn, until after I completed the book, that it has been published in Spanish. Fortunate for the author, I will purchase this version also.
    As the mother of an autistic child I really did not believe I had much more I could learn about this disability. However, the author's offered information, not forcing the reader to buy into his thoughts or theories, caused me to develop a deep respect for him way before I finished the book. His review of the case studies of his students was fascinating. I saw my child in several of these case studies. George had hoped to give some ideas for dealing with different behaviors and he did. I have already tried one and I was pleased with the outcome.
    I am not a professional reviewer so I assume this is not written in proper reviewer form. I really do not care because, being a mother of an autistic child, I believe my review is equally important.
    I plan to contact the publisher of this book and invite the author to be a speaker at our next conference. I feel really warm, really cozy, really friendly with the author. His words were a true inspiration for me. Thank you for this treasure.
