We have much to learn from people with autism and this book makes explicit a lot of information that may be assumed, but perhaps should not be. Students and newly qualified therapists or those new to ASD as a speciality would undoubtedly benefit from reading the book and pondering the contents in the light of their clients' experiences.
The book is replete with strategies for helping people with autism and those who care for them integrate into the neurotypical world. What is unique and most valuable about this book is that it invites us to problem solve based on the values and perspectives of the person with autism first and the expectations of society second. When the inevitable compromises have to be made, he suggests we make them in such a way that we respect the validity of autism as a world view.
