Review

This book is simply written and shows how parents can make a difference. -- The Frontline of Learning Disability It is a highly practical book which gives a wealth of useful information about how 'the system' works, the structure and policy of local authorities, government legislation, the current state of autism services in the UK and an outline of the proposed changes in the way children's services will shortly be reorganised at national, regional and local levels. The book is written in a very readable and accessible style and is aimed both at parents of children with ASD who wish to campaign for better services for their own children and at those who are interested in seeing improvements in autism services for all. -- Good Autism Practice The publication is well set out and enjoyable to read, with comical illustrations and diagrams for clarity. It is a useful `practical guide for parent campaigners who want to a play a part in building better autism services. -- ChildRight The book is easy to read, written in clear, concise English. It presents a balanced point of view, giving quotes form both parents and local education authority (LEA) officers, so parents can get an insight into the constraints on the LEA officers. This book is fantastic and I wish I could have read it five years ago. I would unequivocally recommend it to any parent, who is struggling to get their child's needs met and wants to understand better how the system works; or to any parent group, who wants to campaign for improved services for special needs children. -- Afasic News I was asked to be a critical reader on this book, and was delighted to be so. This is a really well written publication with the clearest explanation I have seen about influencing systems. It is written with parents of autistic children in mind, but would be equally relevant to parents of all disabled children. It should also be compulsory reading for policy makers! -- Council for Disabled Children This is a book that a lot of people will wish they had got their hands on a long time ago. If turning pubic interest into action and improved services is to be achieved, it points the way. Despite its title, a publication of real value to planners, service providers and other professionals as well. -- Current Awareness Service
