Reviews - What do customers think about The Autism Trail Guide: Postcards from the Road Less Traveled?
The Autism Trail Guide Apr 25, 2008
As a mom of two kids with autism, I read every book about autism that I can get my hands on. By far, Ellen's books are the best out there. Since The Autism Trail Guide is a collection of essays, the book is perfect for busy parents and educators who find themselves with only 15 minutes here and there throughout the day to read. It's a very easy read, not at all "clinical" like so many books on the subject. The book is the perfect mixture of information about the nature of autism (including challenging behaviors and sensory issues) and insights that can only come from a parent dealing with autism day in and day out. I recommend this book (and all of Ellen's other books) to anyone that loves, teaches or otherwise cares for a child on the autism spectrum.
Extra Readable and Relatable to All Nov 11, 2007
This book is a fantastic companion to Ten Things Every Child With Autism Wishes You Knew (by the same author). So easy to read, you can feel the empathy of the author as you read it. Easy to apply to own situation. I give it a 10 out of 10.
