Feedback from other customers:

 “Thank you for your amazing work. I would love to see more providers with access to books like this.” – Teanna Savy, Specialist Support Coordinator, Mercy Community

“The visuals have been the most helpful to me. The drawings and tables really helped me group the information together. I really loved Page 28 as I think it is reflective of people with autism.” – Teanna Savy, Specialist Support Coordinator, Mercy Community

“The promotion of participant participation is one of my favourite things about the book.” – Sam C.

“Here is another common-sense manual from Anna Tullemans and Sue Larkey; this time to benefit support workers of adults on the autism spectrum.

Every page is packed with suggestions for workers to encourage their clients to develop skills.

In the book, the authors show workers how to provide support to the individual in accordance with that client’s specific needs. They suggest how workers can teach empowerment to their clients and how to encourage inclusion of their clients in the community.” – Rhonda, Author & Parent
