'This is a practical resource for anyone working with young people wit autism spectrum disorder. It offers pre-prepared activities to enable participants to make choices and practise skills in a safe imaginary situation. I particularly loved the sections aimed at siblings, parents and peers as there are very few resources available for these groups...This is an excellent resource for therapists working with young people with high functioning autism.'

- Speech & Language Therapy in Practice

'This is a very practical book enabling teachers and other professionals to practice new skills when working with individuals with ASD and their families and peers. An adaptable manual that offers a positive intervention to respond to the different learning needs of pupils with autism.'
