If you are embarking on the home Education journey, or even thinking about it, we can recommend this book wholeheartedly. -- Communication The diversity of accounts is refreshing, with a wide range of viewpoints and home-educating approaches. There is thought-provoking debate, throughout several chapters, on the advantages and disadvantages of 'labelling' children, and a refreshing account with a twist at the end by 'Mark's Mum' in the chapter entitled Liberated by the Label. More of the issues discussed are not exclusive to autistic spectrum children, and the book deserves much wider readership. Education professionals at all levels would do well to read this book. I would recommend this book to anyone thinking about, or working with, autistic spectrum children whether or not they plan to home-educate. -- Education Now This is an inspiring and often very moving book which I would recommend to all parents as it covers many core issues about education, parenting and psychology. -- Home Education Advisory Service
