    1. Incredible book. The first chapter alone, a description of autism unlike any you will find in most non-fiction books about autism and teaching autistic children, is worth the price of the book. (I'll be writing some more on that chapter on my blog in the days to come.) I'm not an educator myself, but found much that I could use as a parent to help my school system create a more inclusive program.Although the book focuses on inclusion of autistic children in schools, the best thing about the book [...]

    2. Excited to read this book. Though written with a child on the autism spectrum, I've heard it applies to kids with various Dxes.

    3. I knew most of the strategies already and the strategies are useful for all students, not just students with autism. In all honesty, I didn't really learn that much from this textbook.
