"[D]elightful book...Although the book is written for therapists, parents of children with autism spectrum disorders might want to read this book themselves...It provides therapists with guidelines of what they should be discussing with parents, and when." -- Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic "[A] most unique and valuable book...While books about the subject matter of autism are common, practical advice on the role of the professional as advisor, with its demands, is much harder to find...Professionals and parents will benefit from [Sanders'] expertise." -- Journal of Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry "[A] compilation of years of practice and personal experience that results in sound wisdom for professionals who work with parents of children with ASD...helpful, clearly written, and accessible for both parents and professionals...especially useful for the new clinician, as well as clinicians new to the field of autism for its clear language and direct approach, not to mention its grounding in evidence-based best practices." -- Families in Society: The Journal of Contemporary Social Services "I really recommend this book." -- Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter
