“This is the book I have been waiting for—one I can recommend without reservation to parents of children newly diagnosed with autism. It is full of all the facts and practical information that families need to understand the causes of autism and get their child on the right treatment path. I wish this resource had existed when my daughter was diagnosed. If you’re going to buy one book about autism, this is the one!”

—Alison Singer, President, Autism Science Foundation


“Families looking for answers about autism deserve no less than the best science. But amid the flood of information, where is the science translated into ways that can help one family—and child—at a time? You are holding the answer in your hands. From some of the most outstanding clinical scientists in the field, this book is a treasure to be read by every family whose lives have been touched by autism.”

—Ami Klin, PhD, Director, Marcus Autism Center, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and Emory University


“This highly readable and authoritative summary of the science of autism is a valuable resource for parents. The authors are leading experts who have the gift of science communication—a rare combination. The book is also a useful entry point for students and professionals new to the field.”

—Simon Baron-Cohen, FBA, FMedSci, Director, Autism Research Centre, Cambridge University, United Kingdom


“This book demystifies the most current research to help you make everyday decisions about caring for your child, based on brain science. The authors’ expertise shines through as they describe the 'why' behind your kid's behavior, as well as what can help. They emphasize that there are almost no universals in ASD, showing how you can focus on your child's particular needs. The friendly, helpful explanations and to-do lists in each chapter will go a long way toward replacing worry and stress with practical steps forward.”

—Sally J. Rogers, PhD, coauthor of An Early Start for Your Child with Autism
