Press Reviews

  • Richard Mills, Associate Consultant, AT-Autism, London, & Research Fellow, Dept of Psychology, University of Bath

    This ambitious book brings together a diverse and vastly experienced group of neurotypical and neurodivergent commentators offering observations and advice based on lived experience and research. I particularly welcome the inclusion of the often neglected topics of autism, ethnicity, and culture, the development of IT, and the justice system.
  • Dr. Wenn B. Lawson (PhD)

    Effective support: importantly in line with autistic perspectives, current research, current thinking, and a well put together practical guide that considers autism and intersectionality, gender diversity, sexuality, well-being, attachment, mental fitness and so much more.
  • Julia Grey, Parent to a 7-year-old Autistic child

    The knowledge within this book is immense. It successfully captures key issues ... research, effective interventions; coupled with insights from lived experiences that highlight the need for intersectionality. This is a valuable book that I would recommend that everyone with an interest in Autism reads.
  • Dr Sara Darchicourt, Senior Educational Psychologist and Autism Lead, WKC (Westminster and Kensington) EPCS

    The breadth of the topics in this book makes it a highly recommended and valuable tool for EP practice. The chapters provide both evidence-based and thought-provoking touchstones and way-markers for the future of supporting autistic individuals and their families. The contributors provide constructive information that informs the conceptual, ethical, research and legislative foundations important for all professionals working in the field of autism.
