If you, like me, are the parent of a child with autism, Autistic Logistics is an absolute must-read.

Looking for your child to get dressed - and stay dressed? The step-by-step instructions in Autistic Logistics will help you make it happen - much more quickly than you'd expect! What's more, it will show you how to surmount day-to-day challenges in a way that goes with your child, not against your child. Kate Wilde, who has personally worked with my son, really gets it. She knows all of our challenges, and her fantastic book helps us to overcome them. -- Kristin Selby Gonzalez, President, Autism Hope Alliance (AHA) I have worked with Kate Wilde for over 15 years, and I can tell you, this woman knows what she's talking about. The most outlandish challenge you've had with your child...she's probably tackled it a hundred times. And that's why I'm so excited that she's written such an incredibly useful book for parents. Autistic Logistics is just outstanding! It's a treasure trove of extremely practical techniques to enable your child to triumph over the everyday obstacles that no one else is truly helping you to deal with. And it shows you how to do this in a way that is honoring and respectful of your child.
