“I’m the parent of two autistic adults, a veteran teacher, and a disability activist. No matter which lens I use, this book is simply excellent. I highly recommend it to all those who care about improving the educational experiences of autistic students. . . . This is a must-read for educators who want their autistic students to feel safe and valued in the classroom.”

Laura Kirby-McIntosh, past president, Ontario Autism Coalition

“This book is a much-needed resource for every general teacher, and the well-written introduction sets the tone and expectation of clarity. As a former high school teacher and mother of a Black autistic son, this nuanced discussion on supporting students reminds us as educators that students on the autism spectrum are whole people with families, cultural norms, and expectations beyond the classroom. Boroson’s perspective of being both a mother and educator approaches this duality with an insightful and transparent deference to both the failures and successes of parenting and teaching.”

LaChan V. Hannon, director of teacher preparation and innovation, Department of Urban Education, Rutgers University

“As someone who is on the spectrum, I can truly say that teachers will be able to make use of the information about autism presented in this guide.”

Sam Bowles, recent high school graduate
