As an educator of children, adolescents and adults with autism for over 20 years, I read with dismay Dr. Siegel's simplification of many behaviors exhibited by people with autism. She often makes statements as though they are fact, such as the "why" of many behaviors. At first, it seemed to be an occasional error, but after reading and reading, the book clearly makes arrogant statements about children, parents and education of those with autism which are just plain wrong or strongly misleads with assumptions, rather than factual knowledge.
It dismays me to think that a parent, particularly a parent of a young child with autism, would take these statements as absolute fact, simply because they are written by a Dr. Too often, these highly vulnerable parents come away either with false hope, or with utter dispair about what they have just read in her book.

Ever walk into a room and realize that someone a few feet away is talking about you, yet won't acknowledge that you're standing right there? If you're the parent of a mid to low functioning ASD child, reading this book will make you feel exactly that way. The author isn't talking to you, just at you and about you.

Add the fact that the information is now a decade old and mostly disproved or irrelevant, and there's no good reason to buy it.

Excellent sourcebook for educators and parents. The text is organized so you can go to specific chapters that apply to your needs without having to read from beginning to end. However, I do recommend reading the entire text. Siegel explains current theories on the origins of autism and addresses the validity of "possible causes" that have been floating around. For a teacher, the heart of the book are the heaps of methods to use with students. For parents, it is a breath of fresh aire. Siegel's writing style is very reassuring and is packed with her clinical experiences and research. After reading this book you will certainly be better prepared to advocate for your child's treatment needs.

Helping Children with Autism Learn: Treatment Approaches for Parents by Bryna Siegel is a great book that helped my family and me learn to deal with the fact that our son was Autistic. I think reading about how you can help your child can be empowering. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it.

As someone who has worked with Autistic children and adults for several years and as a member of the spectrum myself, I cannot endorse, recommend, or even suggest in any way that anyone buy Dr. Seigel's books or follow her unhealthy and bigoted diatribes. You don't want to follow a therapist who "undiagnoses" 9 out of every 10 Autistic children, who calls Asperger's a joke, and claims that anyone who is friendly, intelligent, or in any way capable is not Autistic when 2/3rds of all Autistic children and adults are high-functioning or Asperger's and are capable--with the right therapy and right therapists--of having careers, spouses, and "normal" lives. Her deplorable attitude with regards to who she calls "geeks" is that they should not breed. Sounds more like a bigot interested in eugenics than actual treatment to me.

I purchased this book on the recommendation of a pediatric neuropsychologist. As a parent and teacher of students in the autism spectrum, I am very glad that I did. It has been an excellent resource with fully researched information. Clear, honest, and fascinating to read.

I have not finished reading this book; yet like other reviewers I have some reservations. Bryna Siegel does a fine job of explaining Autistic Spectrum Disorders, and how it affects the development of a child. However, I find some of her conclusions and statements to be potentially misleading, especially when since ASDs are still being researched, and not much is 100% definite. Interesting theories, but not necessarily facts. Having said that, use your judgement and don't miss out on the good information and experience that Bryna does offers.

The book is required for a class I'm taking for an endorsement to my teaching certificate in Autism. It is an in-depth study of ASD written in a reader-friendly format.
