"Exceptionally Good Friends: Building Relationship with Autism" has been a labor of love for all of the children with autism and the families that I have been blessed to work with! I hope and pray that my book will be a tool to help children and adults alike to develop a new understanding and empathy for the world of a child with autism. It is my hope that the evidence-based strategies and information included will equip those who live or work with children with autism with a treasure-chest of practical and useful information to support children with autism in daily success.

Now when I see someone who looks or acts differently, I will remember to be kind to them.
