What People are saying about this

Dr. Tony Attwood
A remarkable intervention program!
Barbara Adcock
For me the book was like having a world atlas at my fingertips. I could easily see where we have been, and can get an overview of the terrain ahead. I know that working with our son will be a life long project, and finding a program that helps him have a more productive life later by teaching him relationship skills now is a gift that I can give him.
