Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book should be read by anyone who wants to understand the real nature and experience of autism and is essential reading for Play Therapists seeking to work more effectively within individuals on the spectrum. It will help you to identify and assess children who are on the spectrum and the stage they are at." - Jeff Thomas Registrar PTUK, Play for Life

"The Nine Degrees of Autism is an asset to the field of autistic spectrum disorders (ASD). The current literature on ASD provides medical and psychopathological models. However they do not provide a comprehensive guide on how to help individuals understand and facilitate wellbeing on the autism spectrum...To sum, this is a timely book of 2016 which will aid readers to shift their attitude and lack of understanding about ASD. A great tool for the clinicians toolkit and an inspirational bookshelf aid for individuals with ASD."  – Dr Bijal Chheda-Varma, The Psychologist

"This book gives an honest account of how personal understandings of one’s differences can help reshape self-identity. I found this novel approach, focusing on the ‘developmental journey’, rather than symptoms of disability, refreshingly positive, encouraging progression towards self-acceptance and self-fulfilment....Overall a really worthy book."  – Abbie Turner, Devon Autism and ADHD Service, The Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health

"This is a book written for, and largely by, individuals on the autism spectrum giving accounts of personal or professional experiences of how they progressed in their understanding of, and coming to terms with, their differences from the typical majority. It is more than a heartfelt plea for more understanding and support from that majority (although it is that as well) and aims to be a kind of guide to getting through the stages of recognition, struggle and, sometimes, despair to reach the final stage of self actualization as an autistic person. It is a broadly optimistic book and I was inspired by the courage and wisdom of many of the accounts, while having a few sad memories of those on the spectrum who never reached that final stage." – Rita Jordan, School of Education, University of Birmingham, UK

"This book has had an overwhelming effect on me. It has brought all the Degrees of Autism that I have lived through and experienced before my very eyes, and it is a MUST READ for everyone on the autism spectrum, their families, teachers, therapists, and simply, everyone. It provides the reader with a clear understanding of what we truly go through on our journey through life on the autism spectrum. It enables the autistic reader to understand where they came from, where they currently are, and where their journey may continue. Dr. Tony Attwood's Foreword is stunningly brilliant, as are all the authors who obviously put their heart and soul into their writings. I was rendered speechless by the profound effect it had on me. I burst into tears as the book takes you to a place you have never been. A place where you clearly see into yourself like never before. This book is, without a doubt, the one that can change lives. It is the most awe-inspiring read you shall ever pick up, and you won't be able to put it down until the final page." –  Anita Lesko, BSN, RN, MS, CRNA, author of Asperger's Syndrome: When Life Hands You Lemons, Make Lemonade
