Shore, Ed.D., Clinical Assistant Professor of Special Education,
The author is a driving force behind the UK branch of the International Autism Institute and is Associate Consultant (Autism) to the European Institute of Child Education and Psychology...this book is very researched and, at the same time, readable. The section on recommendations provides some very interesting insights and also questions some established intervention protocols by explaining situations in which they may not be effective. This book will be of interest to those working or living with autistic people or with Asperger Syndrome seeking practical methods and techniques to eliminate sensory perceptual problems and enhance individual strengths. -- Mary Mounstephen * SEN Magazine *
