There's a wonderful partnership that often develops among families, caregivers, professionals and communities who come together to support the lives of individuals with autism. It is a partnership filled with creativity, commitment, compassion and hope. The author has done a wonderful job capturing the essence of that special bond, and in so doing she has created a powerful resource for all families living with the challenges of autism. Both as the mother of a young man who has autism, and as the executive director of Wildwood Programs, an organization that provides a wide range of community based programs and services for people of all ages who have autism and other developmental disabilities, I highly recommend this book.

A wonderful story, derived from real life experience. Family members, educators and physicians will enjoy reading and learning from Ms. Joshi's ability to educate about children with Autism and the collaboration necessary between all who surround them. The comprehensiveness of this collaboration will help define the amount of growth and ultimate quality of life for these children and their families. A very good read!

Having provided music therapy services for people with autism for the last 30 years, I was delighted to read this book. During this time my mentors and teachers have been the professionals with whom I've partnered to meet the needs of these students. Ms. Joshi's book is a firm validation of the importance and power of collaboration, communication and sharing as we work together to unlock the potential for each one of these students.
