"The book is well structured and organized and it makes information accessible which may be beneficial to various disciplines. ... This book has a place in an autism research center, treatment facility for individuals on the spectrum or even in a classroom where teachers are providing education for children diagnosed with ASD. The usefulness of the book in the domains of assessment, treatment and research is clear." (Oren Shtayermman, Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, Vol. 46, 2016)

"This book presents a constellation of research and clinical perspectives of autism and anxiety. ... this is a great resource for researchers and clinicians and for use as reference. I particularly appreciated the detailed review of symptoms of specific anxiety disorders that overlap and, more importantly, differ from ASD features to aid in accurate diagnosis." (Soo Lee, Doody's Book Reviews, January, 2015)
