Understand and support executive function in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) with this fully-explained, innovative model. Showing how to use an individual’s strengths to address executive functioning weaknesses, this approach will also help to build a strong foundation for social and communication skills.

According to Oxford dictionary:


A mental condition, present from early childhood, characterised by great difficulty in communicating and forming relationships with other people and in using language and abstract concepts.

As a person, who works with young children I was rather over the moon when I got a chance to review this book. This book not only helps you to understand and support individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), but also shows how to use individual strengths to help to deal with weaknesses. The author gives you very clear idea on how to identify it and how it affects individuals communication, feelings, thoughts and actions.

This book is eye opener. I mean it is very well written, straight to the point and most important – it’s not overcrowded with fancy vocabulary.  Author’s useful past experience examples not only helps to understand situation better, but also gives a clear vision on how both sides could help and support each other.

I really gave me better understanding about ASD and I am sure going to check other books by this author.


I received a review copy from publisher through Netgalley for honest opinion. Nobody paid me to write this.
