The author's creative, accessible approach invites the reader to look beyond the stereotypes of mainstream schooling and explore the experience of teaching a lively class of children with autism. The author provides an insight into the hopes and concerns of parents as their children begin their educational journey. Some of the parents share their anxieties about handing over the care of their son or daughter to an unknown teacher in these early years, and their worries about placing them in the potentially threatening classroom environment, trusting that their child will be understood, accepted and liked. Ultimately, this book is a celebration of the personalities of children with autism."@en ;
