This book combines practical instruction with a chicken-soup-for-the-soul inspiration. She covers learning to communicate effectively in "autism-speak"; how to design effective classrooms and learning environments; a method for creating schedules which make sense to the students; how to use creative cueing to reinforce lessons; and how to inspire students to achieve their full potential. A small book with a powerful message.
