Editorial Reviews

Review

“A wonderful first introduction to autism for parents, teachers, relatives, and neighbors of a child on the autism spectrum.” —Temple Grandin, author of Thinking in Pictures

“An incredible resource for family members, professionals and individuals on the spectrum attempting to better inform the public about various aspects of ASD.” —Dr. Cathy Pratt, Chair, Autism Society of America and Director, Indiana Resource Center for Autism

“In her crisp and authentic voice, Chantal provides a work that broadens the understanding and offers many answers to the most perplexing problems. Well done!” —Edmund C. Arranga, Co-founder & Executive Director, AutismOne

“[Chantal’s] work cuts to the heart of the matter. She approaches the subject by acknowledging its immensity and its baffling characteristics. Yet by sticking to a doctrine of clarity and pragmatism, she also enlightens.” —Douglas Kennedy, author of Leaving the World and The Job

This book written by a mother who knows Autism is very imformative. I learned so much of the variance of the spectrum of Autism. Now I know how to handle my grandson and other people with Autism so much better. Lots of references for you to follow up on for more information.

It didn't meet my expectations. I was wanting to know more about particular types of autism, like Fragile X. Maybe in another one of her books.
