Good information with a helpful perspective,

I found the book to be informative and encouraging overall.

The Author is quite confident in her perspective. Sometimes this is inspiring, but at other times I found it off putting.

Everything I needed to hear

Coming from a time of recent diagnosis and much uncertainty, this book provided valuable insights in considering the perspective of my autistic child, and helped to transform the natural grief and mourning I was experiencing into a place of acceptance and optimism. I really enjoyed learning more about the sensory factors that can impact children on the spectrum. As a primary health care provider, I found that this book is equally beneficial to both parents and professionals. I requested that my husband read it, who stated that he also enjoyed it. We agreed that it provided a much needed sense of hope during a time when we had so many unanswered questions.
