Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I would highly recommend the book as an excellent resource which every parent, carer and teacher of an autistic child would benefit from reading, taking examples directly or adapting the approach to fit specific situations and the personality of the child."
(Autism)
"Both format and tone are empowering to parents, and the book is an important contribution to the literature for parents of children with special needs. It has new insights and useful suggestions for the experienced clinician, as well."
(Readings)
"Those who care for autistic children will find [this book] to be a gold mine of useful ideas. Every family struggling with the problems of autism will find at least one - and probably many more - of the Manual's 350 instructive anecdotes to be worth the price of the book."
(Bernard Rimland, Autism Research Institute, San Diego, California)
