Editorial Reviews

“Sicile-Kira has done a beautiful job of putting the voices of many people on the spectrum into one book.”
—Temple Grandin, Ph.D., from the Foreword

“The many moving personal stories from adults on the spectrum in Chantal’s 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.”
— Stephen M. Shore, Ed.D., author and autism consultant
