Review

“Mitzi Waltz’s book provides clear, informative, and comprehensive information on every relevant aspect of PDD.... Her in-depth discussion will help parents and professionals develop a clear understanding of the issues; and consequently, they will be able to make informed decisions about various interventions. A job well done!”
—Dr. Stephen M. Edelson, Director of the Center for the Study of Autism in Salem, Oregon

Format: Paperback
I spent the better part of a year looking for the information that was right here in this book. Mitzi Waltz is not only an author but someone who understands what parents are going through from personal experience. If doctor's are telling you you're overreacting, or worse yet nothing is wrong...do NOT be deterred! While long this book is WELL worth the read. Your only problem may be the night of sleep you lose because you can't put it down.

Format: Paperback
Speaking as someone that is trying to get a better grip on PDD, this book has to be one of the most comprehensive that I have read as of yet. My friend has a child with PDD and I am on a journey to find out as much information as I can. The more knowledge that I acquire, the more support I feel that I can give to my friend and her son. This book equips you with a wide range of topics such as: medications, therapies, and educational techniques so that it enables you to make educated choices when it comes to treatment and intervention.

This book was extremely helpful. It inabled me to have a clearer understanding of our child's needs and work with the school district in a much better way. This is a must read for anyone who has a child on the spectrum or works with one.
