“When Elizabeth Gerlach first told me about this project, I was thrilled that someone, finally, was going to organize an incredible amount of information into a well-balanced, clear and concise book. She was able to accomplish this task, and as a result, the Autism Treatment Guide has become one of the best-selling books in the field of autism.
“I also like the overall attitude of the book: ‘What’s the bottom line?’ Many parents want to learn about ways to help their children, and the format of this book allows them to find relevant information in an efficient manner along with references and contact numbers. I know many network parents though out the country, and many of the m keep a copy of this book on their desk to use as a handy reference guide. . . . I hope parents and professionals will use this book as a guide on the road to helping individuals with autism.”
