Review quote

"Teachers are fueled by the idea that maybe, sometimes, we make a difference. The concepts and activities offered in this book show me how I can help a child find true joy in relationships ... a very exciting prospect, indeed!"
Debra Hall Boss, Educator "Steve Gutstein has distilled his clinical experience with individuals with autism, Asperger's and PDD into a comprehensive and comprehensible handbook on social and emotional development. It's value for therapists, parents and people with autism is immeasurable...."
Leonard A. Zwelling, Director of Research, University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Clinic and father of a son with AS "Steve Gutstein's Relational Development Intervention program is designed to encourage genuine reciprocal relationships...Because his approach is quite different from conventional social skills programs, we benefit from not only new insight, but practical strategies for parents and professionals as well... This book will undoubtedly help to solve the relationship puzzle."
