A consummate professional, parent, clinician, program director, and all round terrific person, Susan Moreno has served our field with distinction, energy, creativity, and unbelievable commitment for almost three decades. Though there might be individuals who serve in each of those roles as effectively as Susan does, there is no one who combines them more gracefully and effectively. Her remarkable skill and versatility make her the person who can write a book of this kind that competently presents what is known about ASD, sensitively describes what parents are feeling and going through, thoroughly reviews the latest research, and clearly explains how to implement intervention strategies in ways that will help parents, people with ASD, and those who work with them. Susan's ability to understand ASD from so many different perspectives and to integrate and articulate what she has learned results in an exciting, practical, and energizing approach to the field. Anyone interested in ASD will not want to miss this wonderful contribution. -- Dr. Gary Mesibov, Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and former Director of Division TEACCH
