    An amazing book! Full of real advice and practical suggestions!

    An amazing book! Full of real advice and practical suggestions!!! I
    love this book. The author has two girls on different ends of the
    spectrum, so she gets it! Plus, it is inspirational and positive, which
    most autism books are not. I would recommend this book to anyone with a
    daughter or son on the spectrum. It provides a great overview of
    causes, treatments, and how to deal with it all, and it is very well
    researched. There are funny anecdotes well. It makes you feel as if
    you can do it!
