This is the kind of book that you need to underline key sentences and bookmark nearly every page. Great science behind the subject and some really good ideas to try. Have tried some on my autistic son and the traumatised children that I work with; I have had some pleasing results. It's not a quick fix but the strategies have potential to change lives. I have talked about it so much at work that my colleagues are buying the book as well. Definitely recommend!
