'This is the only autism-specific book that I know of that is written specifically for those underpaid angels of the inclusive classroom, the paraprofessional aides. Certainly aides can read the numerous other books about teaching students with autism spectrum disorders and learn a great deal from them. But this book discusses some issues that do not come up in those other books, such as what the relationship should be between the aide and the teacher.' - The Autism Society of Wisconsin 'OUTSTANDING - The one book every paraprofessional who works with students within the autism spectrum should have. Part One is concise and highlights the essential information every paraprofessional should know when working with students within the autism spectrum. Part Two utilizes a `cook book' format, making it quick and easy to access information, allowing for immediate reference. Real-life examples and proven strategies make this book not only user friendly but immediately effective for all paraprofessionals who use it. A one of a kind!' - James Ball, Ed.D., Director, Youth Consultation Service, Sawtelle Learning Center, Montclair, NJ 'Dr. Diane Twachtman-Cullen has fulfilled an enormous need in writing a manual that directly addresses the crucial role of paraprofessionals.

Prizant, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, Childhood Communication Services, Cranston, RI This book will be essential reading for all classroom assistants and support staff working with children with pervasive developmental disorder, autism and Asperger syndrome.
