The years of experience in sharing the world with people with autism that are communicated throughout this handbook are what make it powerful - this is a genuine sharing of insights and expertise... Moreover, this handbook is incredible empathetic. We are given real insights into what sensory overload and distortion feel like alongside more information about the senses than practitioners and carers usually have access to... It is a quick and easy read, but one that has impact. -- British Journal of Learning Disabilities This handbook shows how we can engage with people who are non-verbal or semi-verbal and sometimes even those who have speech but lose the power to process it when they are in crisis. -- BILD Information Service I would recommend it to any parent.carer or professional seeking to develop meaningful relationships with individuals who are hard to reach and an environment that supports the sensory needs of the individual with ASD. -- Autism West Midlands
