Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book brought me to tears in parts. The author has a lot of very helpful information for anyone who has a child with autism. The reason I only gave 4 stars was because some parts felt as if I was reading a thesis on the topic. But that was only a minor issue. Overall a very informative book with good information.
This is an amazing book. Not only does she give advice that WORKS but she also gives real life stories making me feel like she understands.
