About the Author:

Judith Bluestone, who herself triumphed over the challenges of autism, understands the reality faced by individuals on the autism spectrum and by their families. From her work as an advocate, teacher, therapist and lecturer, she created the Holistic Approach to NeurDevelopment and Learning Efficiency (HANDLE), and later established The HANDLE Institute International in Seattle. WA. At seminars and conferrences around the world, Bluestone has presented her paradigm for understanding human functioning, and has published widely on behavior and learning challenges.

Review:

The Fabric of Autism is engrossing, indeed, gripping. touching the nerve of virtually everything taking place in our current cultural crisis of childhood. In its pace, balance between theory and hard facts and splendid use of anecdotal examples. Bluestone conveys complex issues in a way that is readable by everyone. --Joseph Chilton Pierce, Author of Magical Child, Evolution's End and The Biology of Transcendence

Parents will find The Fabric of Autism particularly valuable, as it provides a range of options and insights. Bluestone makes valid points regarding sensory perceptions of those with autism and the value of helping autistic individuals understand why certain events are occurring or particular decisions have been made for them. --Professor Tony Attwod, Author of Asperger's Syndrome: A Guide for Parents and Professionals

there is such a needto unmask the positive potential of every human being. The Fabric of Autism is like a beacon of light leading the way. --Jeannette Vos, Co-author of The Learning Revolution
