Peering through the "Autism lens" allows us to change in terms of the way we deal with autism as a society and in education. Evidence-based support and strategies enable us to develop young people's ability to interact with the social world, dispensing of the anxiety that often accompanies it.

The Little Book of the Autism Spectrum allows anyone who lives or works with children with autism to understand their world through an ‘autism lens'. The most positive step we can take with a child with autism is to understand the condition, and the world in general, from his or her point of view. This book develops the knowledge and delivers evidence-based strategies for communication, social interaction and the emotional, behavioral and sensory challenges faced by young people with autism.

"A concisely written work that will be especially helpful for parents trying to get ‘up to speed' when their children are newly diagnosed, it covers a wealth of material quickly without over simplifying."-Lars Perner, PhD, Assistant Professor of Clinical Marketing, Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California

"This book is a must-read for parents, professionals and young people with an interest in autism. It is a welcome addition to the existing literature, providing a clear, concise and very readable overview."-Dr Paul Wallis, Director of Psychological Services, CAMHS Directorate, Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

"A great book, packed full of facts and information."-Pam Smith MBPsS, BMus(Hons), BSc(Hons), PGCE, Postgraduate Certificate in Professional Studies in Education (Autism). Special School Teacher, Surrey

"This excellent little book will be appreciated equally by parents and carers as well as by professionals."-Eric Taylor, Educational Psychologist, Persona EPS Ltd
