Based on posts on the popular online Autism Discussion Page, this book is a toolbox of simple strategies for supporting children with autism spectrum disorders and helping them to feel safe, accepted and competent. Book 2 covers anxiety and stress, challenging behaviors, stretching comfort zones, discipline, and school issues. It also provides more general teaching and mentoring strategies for coaching children on the autism spectrum in basic daily living strategies to improve their day-to-day lives. Available for the first time as a book, and organised by subject for ease of reference, these posts offer an excellent understanding of how children with autism process and experience the world and effective strategies for coping with the challenges.

Industry Reviews

Many of us count among the 56,000 who have benefitted from Bill Nason's advice from his Autism Discussion Page on Facebook. Now Bill has shared his accumulated insights into autism in a comprehensive manual that translates autism--for the neurotypical community of teachers, parents and service providers--but also for those of us looking to enhance our own self-awareness of the inner workings of autism strategies and techniques. If you only buy two books this year, make them the Autism Discussion Page green and blue books! -- Dena L. Gassner, MSW, Program Director of Center for Understanding, Board Member of GRASP, and Advisory Board Member of Autism Society of America
Bill's work has given me so much insight to why my son acts the way he does. I have read many books, articles and magazines, and I have seen many professionals, but this is by far the best source of information out there. -- Carey Gazella-Rosas, parent of a child with autism (from the Autism Discussion Page on Facebook)
As an occupational therapist with over 30 years of experience, I have found Bill Nason's spectrum-spanning insights to be sensitive, intuitive, realistic, and applicable for a wide variety of needs and situations. He truly understands and appreciates the subtleties of autism. -- Marcia Hawley Bakemeyer, occupational therapist (from the Autism Discussion Page on Facebook)

A must have for parents.


This book is a powerful reference for parents who are strong advocates for their children in these challenging times in education. As a parent - and also a teacher - this is my number one recommendation for parents of children with ASD.



A manual for Autism
