Review

FINDING OUR WAY presents an approach that truly respects the needs of children with ASD. Kristi balances her heartfelt perspective with an array of valuable ideas and information that will be helpful to any ASD parent. I am thrilled to have such a quality resource to recommend to parents with whom I consult.
--Lisa A. Lieberman, MSW, LCSW, psychotherapist, speaker and author of A STRANGER AMONG US

With clarity and insight, this book offers practical solutions for many of the questions I am consistently being asked by parents. What a terrific resource both for the families I work with and for myself as a parent of a child with Asperger Syndrome.
--Nan Lester, MS, educational and psychological consultant, director of the Asperger Advocacy Coalition

Once you begin reading this book, you will not be able to put it down. Kristi Sakai is the modern-day Erma Bombeck of the Autism World, sharing her parenting experiences with wit, wisdom, and honest reflection. The book will make you laugh and cry and truly feel the impact of living with autism spectrum disorder. In addition, it is filled with invaluable insights and practical supports for everyday happenings. This is a MUST READ for parents, families, and professionals alike.
