    A Hopeful Look at Dealing with an Austiistic Child

    Since we have a grandson with autism,I have read many books by parents and professionals on the subject.This one, by a mother who is also a teacher, is real and gives detailed descriptions of things she did to help her child. She doesn't sugarcoat the difficulties or the time and discipline required to help her child see results. Our child has been in a program that uses some of the same techniques for six months and is making progress; but because every case is different, it is always helpful to see what other caregivers have done that gave good results. We will surely try some of her ideas and appreciate her sharing of them.

    A must for parents noticing autistic symptoms

    Amazing true story. If these results are typically possible, there is great hope for all autistic children.

    Great Book!!

    I actually borrowed this book from a friend and ended up buying it for myself and the following book that goes more into details of the breakdown of each skills and drills. I was very excited to have things all explain out as to what what done and what tools/supplies that you need. I would definately recommend this book to any person who has a child with autism and whats to do a little extra therapy with them. The skills and drills that this lady came up with are excellent and incorporate everyday things.
