'The reader can gain a good overall understanding of autism and the issues which arise in teaching and learning across the spectrum but can also focus on and apply sections of the book which are specific to his or her own situation. I feel that this book is relevant to all school staff involved in educational planning for children who have autistic spectrum disorders' - REACH. `The reader will be left feeling challenged to rethink the learning experience of the child with ASD in their class, more clearly attuned to the child's voice and with an armful of ideas to try out in the classroom' - TES Website.
