Wish I had known about this book years ago. I could have resolved many issues earlier with the knowkedge found in this book. Recommend it to any parent with a child in the spectrum.

My daughter was diagnosed PDD NOS under the Autism Spectrum and this book has offered a lot of great ideas and practices. Worth the read.

More for Autism, not so much for Aspergers Sept. 20 2012
By bgandl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I did not get much out of this for my two high IQ Auties. It really focuses on the more severe symptoms of lower-functioning autism. But it is SOOOOOO good... Too bad I can't use much of it. I wish folks wouldn't lump these diagnoses together. So different. Different needs and symptoms. Still, this would be an INCREDIBLE resource for autistic kids.

Bridget's Review July 4 2010
By bridget3420 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I think everyone should read this book so that they can understand the struggles that parents and children face. It has great ideas for teaching children with these conditions but a lot of the tips apply to people who deal with a child who has ADD or ADHD or just doesn't have the desire to learn. It's a big book but it doesn't take as long to read it as you would think.

This book answered the question 'so now what?' Nov. 19 2013
By Ursula A Boudreau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the reasons I liked this book was that we received mixed input from friends and family regarding our son's diagnosis, especially since he was 4.5. This book indicated many examples of habits and behaviors that gave my husband and I 'ah-ha!' moments and it helped us feel less powerless to help our son. we knew that traditional ways of dealing with certain things did not work with our son and this book helped point out things that did.

Better for older children May 23 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book to give me some ideas to broaden the activities that I can do with my "mildly" autistic 2-year-old daughter. However, she only communicates through PECS so we can't do most of the activities in the book. This book touches on many different subjects and I can see me using it more in the future when she is more verbal.

When I purchased this book, I thought that it covered potty training as one reviewer said. However, it does not cover it. The authors said that there is too much information to include and to purchase a different book if you are looking to potty train.
