Press Reviews

  • Gail Meyer, MSW, LCSW Certified Educational Planner, Educational Consultant, Los Angeles, CA

    Michael McManmon's wonderful new book will serve as an invaluable resource for educational consultants working with ASD students. Learning how to employ "Active Learning" skills with students will help guide all educational professionals to work more effectively with ASD students. This book will become an indispensable resource in your professional library.
  • Maxine Aston, counsellor, supervisor and author of ‘The Other Half of Asperger Syndrome (Autism Spectrum Disorder)’

    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.
