Excellent comprehensive book. Thorough and Understandable.
Reviewed in the United States on March 5, 2017
Probably the most comprehensive and common sense book on autism I have read out of about 8 books. I actually listened to the book on audible, mostly while driving or doing housework and was not bored at all. Even parts that didn't relate to my child (like info on non verbal autism) were interesting. I purchased the actual book because I felt it would be easier to reference information from the book rather than the audible version saved to my icloud. Promotes comprehensive approaches to assisting people in the spectrum from diet, to medication (extremely helpful info on meds, my child is currently not medicated but should the need arise I feel far more prepared to disc uss options with a doctor having read this book) to sensory aids like tinted lenses and just good old fashioned parenting, consistently expecting polite behavior with consistent, appropriate consequences. Temple shares her own experiences as an autistic as well as experiences gathered from the masses of people on the spectrum that she has met and collaborated with.
