Reviews

'Exploring autism and happiness is not new, however, this book dissolves the mystery - not imposing a neurotypical view of happiness on autistic individuals is key. Positive psychology uncovers individual autistic dispositions, emphasises strengths and connection to meaning, facilitating happiness that builds into secure and content wellbeing.'
- Dr. Wenn B. Lawson AFBPsS; MAPs Senior Consultant Complex Support, Edu. Dept. Disability, Policy & Programs, SA Govt. Australia
