Reviews

These pictures are some of the best illustrations of what autism is. They give the reader a really good picture of how a child with autism thinks. They think with pictures in their head. I use them in my presentation and lectures to demonstrate visual thinking processes. Dr. Temple Grandin, world-renowned author and speaker
