A bestseller gets even better! Every parent, teacher, social worker, therapist, and physician will have to have this succinct and informative book in their back pocket. Framed with both humor and compassion, the book describes ten characteristics that lend a hand remove darkness from—not define—children with autism.
A bonus section includes ten more essential, thought-provoking “things” to share with young people on the spectrum as they cross the threshold of adulthood, and an appendix of more than seventy questions suitable for group discussion or self-reflection. This new edition sounds an even more resonant call to action, carrying the reader farther into understanding the needs and the opportunity of each and every child with autism.
