Praise for The Autism Checklist
"As well as being a standout addition to the litany of parenting books available, this manual may be the most effective strategy guide for educators that I've yet seen. The Autism Checklist doesn't demand an enormous amount of teachers' time, yet it gives them (and parents) volumes of useful information."
Michael John Carley, executive director, GRASP (The Global and Regional Asperger Syndrome Partnership, Inc.) and author, Asperger's From the Inside Out

For many years Paula Kluth has been an asset to our son's educational process with her previous publications as well as professional advice on her website. She is not only invested in assisting within her professional standards, but also has done much within community acceptance and awareness for individuals living with autism daily. She is an amazing advocate for all children and adults that have unique learning and communication abilities as well.
John Shouse's input in this book also is apparent not only from the insight of being a parent, but also from the aspect of an individual that is a strong believer in community access, providing opportunity, and giving that gem of information that just clicks.
As a parent of an eighteen year old son with ASD, I am very appreciative that this book exists and only wish I had it sixteen years ago when our son was first diagnosed.
