For starters I think the message that speaks the loudest in this book is that parental love has no boundaries in education, research, commitment or results. This is an uplifting and realistic perspective from folks who have lived on the front lines of autism.
They did it during a time much of the debate and confusion of what it was and how it affected individual kids who grew to be adults with autism. Adults who go on to live productive lives that are engaged, with the world around them interactively and not hidden away as flawed.
In my mind, the interesting part of this journey was that they really had no advantages when they were in the middle of the struggle. Looking for answers in the age before the internet where the most you could hope for was a Research Library close enough to utilize.
This book is set up to help parents currently dealing with the challenge to plan and implement a home program if you will. That makes quick work of advice, been there anecdotes which I would think are the most helpful.
But more important than all that a voice to listen to who has faced the Autism negative diagnosis and as a family turned it into not just a positive because this book is so much more than any “my glass is half full” platitudes book.
I'm giving this book five stars because it doesn't sugar coat the reality it just serves hope on the side as dip.

What made the experience of listening to Be Strong, Be Tough, Be Smart the most enjoyable?
As someone who works with many children with autism, this book was particularly interesting. The author does a great job of conveying hope and giving his account on how persistence and constant dedication has led to better results in dealing with his autistic child. Very inspirational on many levels and I am glad I found this book. Highly recommended.
