Claire Hughes-Lynch writes with the authority that comes from holding a Ph.D. in special education and the humanity that comes from being the mother of a child with autism. Her book—at once an accessible reference manual, a touching memoir, and a practical guidebook—is a compelling read for any parent of a child on the autism spectrum. --Mary McLaughlin, M.Ed., author of the autism blog, Mom Not Otherwise Specified
The humor, honesty, and real-world examples that the author brings from her personal perspective as a parent makes it easy to digest the incredible amount of information and research she provides as a professor. I strongly recommend this book not only to parents, but also to educators, administrators, politicians, and anyone else even remotely curious about ASD. --Wendy W. Murawski, Ph.D., professor, California State University

This book was a very insightful and interesting read. I don't have any children, but I hope to be a teacher one day and this book gave me a whole new perspective on autism and the different forms it comes in. It was easy to read and relatable. Dr. Claire Hughes is clever and witty.
I recommend this book to anyone who is at all interested in finding out more about autism because it will give you a better understanding. It may even give you a better understanding of yourself.
