'A treasure for any parent of a child with ASD. My son Harry was diagnosed with ASD two years ago, and I was left feeling alone and confused. Reading this book has taken me from the isolation so many of us parents feel, to a community of care and understanding. This book is like a much-needed hug at the end of a bad day.'
