Reviews of Autism and Learning Differences - An Active Learning Teaching Toolkit:

'A readable, visually appealing and well-structured book that will appeal to educators and professionals, as well as parents and students. The author shares with the reader a wealth of information gathered from over thirty years of experience and research. This has been put together in one of the most understandable, structured and well-formatted educational books I have read. Its content is colourful, interesting and clear, offering tools, strategies, explanations and worksheets that can be used as they are or easily adapted to an individual's needs. Michael McManmon explains the diagnosis and its usefulness in a positive, straightforward way and answers many questions that might be asked by an individual affected by an ASD or LD. I cannot recommend it enough.' - Maxine Aston, counsellor, supervisor and author of ?The Other Half of Asperger Syndrome (Autism Spectrum Disorder)?
