This is a ground breaking book for anybody who parents, cares for or teaches a child, teenager or even a young adult with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Absolutely brilliant book, and with Autism diagnosis being on the increase worldwide including a huge spike in girls and women being diagnosed now it could not be more needed or timely.

I have Asperger's Syndrome and was diagnosed as an adult at age 41, I have a teenage son with Asperger's and work as a Job Coach/Trainer and Advocate for adults on the Autism Spectrum, I have studied in the field also. Why do I share this? Well, because it's always interesting to read books about Autism when you have Autism, you can pretty quickly weed out the good from the bad. We are tough critics! This book is in the top of the line category.

I have been a fan of the author's Facebook page for a long time, this book has come from many requests from followers, parents, carers who have asked for all of the information and advice that goes on Facebook to be in a book format for easy reference. It's a book you can read cover to cover, dip into or just search for what you are looking for.

Bill writes really clearly, no "psychology speak" that baffles the average reader here, it's extremely easy to absorb and understand. He covers a range of important topics surrounding the support and understanding of children with Autism.

I applaud Bill for his positive approach to listening to, and entering into the world of the Autistic Child, this book represents what most Autistic adults feel - that we don't want to be changed, we just want to be understood. Children are no different.

Very accessible read. This is a book for 'real' people who are living with autism on a daily basis. I've found it immensely reassuring and validating as the mother of a child with autism and I will be recommending that all professionals who come into contact with my daughter have a copy of this book and its partner. It deals with the lived experiences.
