Customer Review: Neil and Tracy - I immediately was impressed by all the topics Top Ten Tips covers. Everything is covered, from the everyday topics such as eating and bed time, to the infrequent such as Disney World. In fact, we just happened to be going to Florida for Christmas and the travel tips and theme park tips saved me. The tips are practical and cover the Autism Spectrum. I found Top Ten Tips easy to read and will be referencing it for years. The appendix guide and reference guide at the end of the book are worth the price alone too. I already found an amazing documentary to send to my family from the tips that has helped tremendously. I highly recommend this book to parents, family and care givers to learn more about how to help the amazing child with Autism in their life.
