    "If u have an autistic kid, get this"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Loved this, just listen.


    What other book might you compare Autism Breakthrough to and why?

    not sure but this one helped me and my son


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked him explaining how to get through to your child with no distractions.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    yes because my son is a constant struggle. I want him to just be a "normal" little boy. He never will be but I will never stop trying and this book showed me and others different ways we could get thru to him. and I thank the author for that.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope to meet the author one day

    "Life Changing Book!"

    This is book has a large breath of knowledge! The ideas stated here have changed my life and how I think about, talk about, and teach people with ASD!

    Raun's narration is lively and easy to listen to. I found myself chuckling and engaged as he would use inflection or give examples!

    Highly recommend to anyone that wants to expand their beliefs and behaviors toward those living with ASD!

    Thank you For writing this book! I look forward to reading the books you suggested.
