Reviews for Positive Behaviour Strategies to Support Children & Young People with Autism

'All in all, this book provides an excellent resource for anybody who has any input into the lives of people with autism. It offers an extremely accessible, holistic and humanistic approach to positive behaviour strategies. The needs of the person with autism are central to all aspects of the book. It provides a balanced framework to approach positive, proactive behaviour strategies as well as asking those who wotk with people with autism to reflect on their own practices' - REACH Journal
