Reviews

'It is a book that speaks with an enthusiastic voice and encourages readers to be motivated to try new ideas. There is something for everyone involved in caring for and teaching children with Autism.'
- The Word Pool

'Lois Brady does all things well...from reviewing and applying the latest "app for autism" to creating and documenting effective techniques that connect our special kids to the world. In this book, two dedicated Occupational Therapists and two Speech and Language Therapists combine their "first-hand learnings, insights and wisdom" to help the rest of us unlock the mysteries of autism. Thank you Lois, America, Maciej and Corinda - and Jessica Kingsley - for doing what you do so well.'
- Craig Evans, Founder, AutismHangout.com

'Creative, fun and informative! Everything a parent, teacher or professional could want in order to create easy lessons for kids on the autism spectrum.'
