Review:

This is an excellent and engaging book, providing an up-to-date and remarkably comprehensive source of knowledge and practical information on autism and Asperger syndrome. (Richard Mills, Director of Research, Research Autism, Communication)

This is a clear, well-illustrated little book that provides a concise introduction to the ASDs and balances coverage of many of the issues that preoccupy families in the initial stages of coming to terms with the diagnosis with coverage of less immediately obvious issues and direction to resources such as websites and support groups. (Journal of Autism and Development Disorders)

Book Description:

Endorsed by MAAP Services/ Highly commended in the Popular Medicine Category of the BMA Book Awards 2009
