I have worked with Kate Wilde for over 15 years, and I can tell you, this woman knows what she's talking about. The most outlandish challenge you've had with your child...she's probably tackled it a hundred times. And that's why I'm so excited that she's written such an incredibly useful book for parents. Autistic Logistics is just outstanding! It's a treasure trove of extremely practical techniques to enable your child to triumph over the everyday obstacles that no one else is truly helping you to deal with. And it shows you how to do this in a way that is honoring and respectful of your child. As someone who has worked with thousands of families with children on the spectrum - and overcome autism myself - I can tell you that this book will be a game-changer for you and your family. -- Raun K.
