Stephen's book is a compendium of well and less known facts about children on the autism spectrum. It is written in a format to help parents understand their children's needs and obtain or provide the essential support to help them thrive. It is grounded in Stephen's decades of experience and current research with informative and scientifically based references explained so that anyone can understand. This A to Z, via synaesthesia and prosopagnosia, for example, includes information about autism that even some professionals may not know. -- Cathy Pappalardo, M Ed St, BA, Dip Ed, Cert IV TAE, GAICD, Executive Director and Principal, Hubbard's School, Brisbane, Australia I have long admired the work of Stephen Heydt, a clinical psychologist with over 30 years' experience with children on the autism spectrum. This A to Z of autism is perhaps the most helpful book for caregivers that I have read in my long history of working in the field. -- Dr Lisa Brice D. Psych. M. Psych. M. Soc. Sci., Clinical Psychologist, Asperger Services Australia Each child's different qualities enrich us all,' Stephen Heydt reminds readers in this brief but reassuring, wide-ranging guide. Practical and accessible, A Parents' ABC of the Autism Spectrum offers sympathetic, clear definitions, concise explanations, and thoughtful strategies for how we can best support our children with ASD. -- Liane Kupferberg Carter, author of Ketchup Is My Favorite Vegetable: A Family Grows Up With Autism Stephen Heydt's love, respect and understanding of children on the autism spectrum shines through in this easily accessible book. It is a veritable cornucopia of all things pertaining to autism. Scrupulously researched, it makes finding information on all aspects of autism as easy as ABC. A book that is Accessible, Beneficial and Convenient, that should grace the shelves of all those who are eager to know more about this enigmatic condition. -- K. I. Al-Ghani, specialist advisory teacher, university lecturer, autism trainer and international author of books on ASD
