John Clements, psychologist and author
Read this book! If you are closely involved in the lives of children and young people identified with the autism moniker, particularly those whose co-operation is hard won - parent, teacher, care worker - this is a book rich in insights and ideas.
Kari Dunn Buron, Autism Education Specialist/Author, Minnesota, USA, The Incredible 5-Point Scale, When My Worries Get Too Big! www.5pointscale.com
With his honest assessments and creative interventions, the author presents a wonderful array of practical teaching ideas. I highly recommend this book for anyone who parents or supports another person's social and emotional development.

Feeling that this was a 'specialist' book on a subject I probably know as much about as the average person, I started reading, expecting it could be hard going. Nothing could be further from the truth. From the opening page I was completely absorbed...I found myself living in the particular child's world during their chapter, seeing the two-way learning process slowly unfold, and the incredible interaction taking place...If you have the slightest interest in autism, this is the book for you.
