Summary: "This book clearly explains the path that needs to be taken in order to work effectively with individuals on the autism spectrum. Beginning by being autism aware, learning to become autism friendly and on to being able to work in a truly autism intelligent way. It does this in particular by challenging the more common held views on choice and control and shows what really needs to happen for many people with autism is for choice to be limited and restricted and even at times withheld altogether. The people with autism who made significant contributions to this book tell us how stressful and anxiety making quite simple everyday choices can be and theirs is the voice that needs to be heard." - BOOK JACKET
