Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the only book I've read so far where the author's child was so similar to my child. The techniques were helpful in our adjustment to cyber school. It worked right away. I'm not done reading it yet but the most important thing that this book gave me was the reassurance of things that constantly worried me like stimming. The author's thoughts reflected my exact thoughts during this journey. It was a great comfort to me. One of the best books I've read so far. I'm sorry I didn't read this sooner. Thank you Dr. Koegel for writing this book. The information is invaluable to me!

This book is hard to come by. Most other books are fluff with no actionable steps a parent can take and only outlines the characteristics of an autistic child (which I don't want to hear). This book is different because it gave me HOPE!

This book is excellent and has great parenting tips that could apply to any child - not just one on the spectrum. I purchased additional copies as gifts for the Special Ed teachers in our lives as it has expert advice that is easy to locate with how the chapters are set up.
