Breath of Fresh Air Oct 14, 2007
Jennifer Abeles has written such a wonderful new perspective on Autism that all of us as caregivers and professionals can breathe with a sigh of relief. Jennifer's book makes it easy to connect the dots and comprehend the inner workings of autism. The book is filled with wonderful affirmations and an incredible talent to convey concepts about autism and people with autism that is easy to understand and more importantly to apply. As a mental health therapist I know that her book is a wonderful gem that I will use over and over again. Thank You Jennifer!

Jennifer Abeles, Director of the Autism Angel Center and author of the worldwide "Inspiration: Autism" column presents The Heart of Autism: Motivational Intervention Strategies for Caregivers & Professionals, a guide brimming with affirmations, real-life examples of successful people and programs dealing with autism, inspiration for coping with challenging realities, and much more. Written for family members, caregivers, and health professionals of all backgrounds, The Heart of Autism emphasizes the spiritual side of working with autism spectrum individuals and offers numerous tips, tricks, and tidbits for nurturing one's own mental and spiritual health and needs. "Autism is not any different than any other life event when it comes to how to deflect stress, tension, and even flat-out disgust over the things that happen to make us cringe. The trick is, you've got to learn to see the humor in situations now instead of later! After all, witnessing our children embarrassing us is universal to parents of all children, with or without any type of diagnosis." Highly recommended as psychological and emotional supplementary reading for anyone working with autism spectrum children or adults.
