Review quote

Many of us count among the 56,000 who have benefitted from Bill Nason's advice from his Autism Discussion Page on Facebook. Now Bill has shared his accumulated insights into autism in a comprehensive manual that translates autism--for the neurotypical community of teachers, parents and service providers--but also for those of us looking to enhance our own self-awareness of the inner workings of autism strategies and techniques. If you only buy two books this year, make them the Autism Discussion Page green and blue books! -- Dena L. Gassner, MSW, Program Director of Center for Understanding, Board Member of GRASP, and Advisory Board Member of Autism Society of America Bill's work has given me so much insight to why my son acts the way he does. I have read many books, articles and magazines, and I have seen many professionals, but this is by far the best source of information out there. -- Carey Gazella-Rosas, parent of a child with autism (from the Autism Discussion Page on Facebook) As an occupational therapist with over 30 years of experience, I have found Bill Nason's spectrum-spanning insights to be sensitive, intuitive, realistic, and applicable for a wide variety of needs and situations. He truly understands and appreciates the subtleties of autism. -- Marcia Hawley Bakemeyer, occupational therapist (from the Autism Discussion Page on Facebook)show more
