Publisher's Summary

Parents, teachers, therapists, and anyone who cares about a child or teen on the autism spectrum needs this essential roadmap to prepare our youth for being successful adults in today's world. Best-selling author, autism advocate, and animal science professor Dr. Temple Grandin joins psychologist and autism specialist Dr. Debra Moore in spelling out the steps you can take to restore your child's hope and motivation, and what you must avoid. Eight life stories told by people on the autism spectrum, including chapters on subjects such as how to get kids off their computers, how to build on their strengths and get back to caring about their lives, and how to find a path to a successful, meaningful life make this a must-hear audiobook.

Eyes Wide Open

What a great book for parents with ASD teens. So many things I knew were important but avoided because of backlash. Now I understand the value and necessity to give my son the loving pushes he needs to survive as a young adult. I've bought the book for many of my friends.
