“The Australian Autism Handbook was the first book on autism that I ever bought. It provided for me the breadth and depth of information that sparked a lifelong passion. The updated version of this seminal text is important reading for families. Written with the engaging flair of experienced authors and the wisdom and soul of parents, this Handbook provides an introduction to all things autism, and will spark in families that love and joy that has lasted with me decades later.”— Professor Andrew Whitehouse, Angela Wright Bennett Professor of Autism, Telethon Kids Institute and The University of Western Australia —
