“It is also noteworthy that Dr. Freeman is the parent of a 21 year-old daughter with autism, and holds a Ph.D. in Sociology from Stanford University, where she specialized in small group research… Dr. Freeman shares her perspectives as a mom, which further contributes to the authenticity of this book, and may appeal to parents who may be more amenable to the cautionary words of one who walks in their shoes…. The book is comprehensive, thoroughly researched, and well organized… Parents of children with autism, particularly those with newly diagnosed children, face a dizzying array of options that can be absolutely overwhelming…. Fortunately, this book will be of tremendous help.. for Dr. Freeman’s review and description of the available research is presented in a careful, thorough and straightforward manner. Perhaps of greatest significance is that the author is writing from the dual perspectives of professional and parent.”
- Dr. David Celiberti, Ph.D. BCBA-D

“This book is a must read for any parent who has a child with autism, because within its pages lies the unvarnished truth regarding what works and doesn’t work and how to make the distinction.” - Dr. Richard Foxx, Ph.D. BCBA-D

Editorial Reviews

Dr. David Celiberti, Ph.D. BCBA-D
Freeman's latest book, The Complete Guide to Autism Treatments, may indeed be her most important contribution to parents of children with autism, as well as to those professionals who work with this clinical population. When speaking as a parent, her commitment to science is unwavering and, appropriately so; she is unapologetic in honestly sharing her perspectives as an informed mother. Undoubtedly this is a resource that the reader can expect to pick up time and time again.
