Customer Review: Dorothy Peacor - I was a special education teacher for over twenty years. I wish I had all the books by Judy Coucouvanis when I was teaching. Her ideas on being positive and using praise instead of focusing on negative behaviors and negative consequences are so reasonable. Her rules on building confidence, giving attention and encouragement for positive behaviors, are insightful and so helpful. I volunteer and work with young children and have found "Rules and Tools" an extremely useful resource.

Customer Review: James Rothschild - I have 90 autism books, and just received this one yesterday. It is already one of my new favorites! I can't wait to share it with my therapists, as their are definitely strategies in the book that I want to implement in my own life as an individual living with autism. Chloe Rothschild
