Good guide for parents

My daughter is on the spectrum and recently turned 12. This book gave me many practical suggestions for helping her prepare adulthood.

So helpful

I felt like this was more of a loving push to me, as a parent of a 9-yr old son who is twice exceptional, than anything else. This input has already impacted my parenting decisions. I can't help him to be more autonomous if I don't encourage as much autonomy/responsibility as is appropriate for his age and ability. Thank you so much for publishing this!

Perfect for Teachers and Parents

What did you love best about The Loving Push?

I teach children with Autism and find that conversations with my parents about their child's future is a very difficult conversation to have. I plan on recommending this book to my parents this upcoming school year.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Leigh Ashman?

She is a bit bland. Not the right fit for an audio book like this.

Eyes Wide Open

What a great book for parents with ASD teens. So many things I knew were important but avoided because of backlash. Now I understand the value and necessity to give my son the loving pushes he needs to survive as a young adult. I've bought the book for many of my friends.
