Temple Grandin, Ph.D., from the Foreword
The many moving personal stories from adults on the spectrum in Chantals books provide much- needed insight into the children we are raising and educating today. Both parents and educators will gain more understanding of what it is like to have autism, and learn how we can best prepare our children for adulthood. I highly recommend this excellent book.
Lee Grossman, President and CEO, Autism Society of America
In her best work yet, Chantal went straight to the source people on the autism spectrum to answer some of the most vexing questions related to helping those with autism to lead fulfilling and productive lives to the greatest extent possible.
