This book presents an international research-based framework that has empowered parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to become critical decision makers to actively guide their child’s learning and self-advocacy. Parents can use this framework to identify their child’s vision and dreams, and to work with educators and service providers to establish specific learning goals and to implement effective interventions and programs that enable their child to achieve those goals and realise their vision for the future. The book begins by reviewing available research on evidence-based practice for children with ASD and outlining the Cycle of Learning decision-making framework for parents and professionals. Throughout the remainder of the book, case studies are presented to illustrate the ways in which different parents have successfully utilised this framework to develop effective plans for their child and to advocate for learning and education programs for both their child and other children with ASD in school and community settings. In addition, it highlights concrete examples of how parents have used the framework to empower their children with ASD to develop their self-awareness and self-determination, and to be able to self-advocate as they move through adolescence and into adult life.

After years of in-the-trenches life, battling school administers, many "I'm just not sure... I can't help" doctors; and in-depth studying of books written about troubled children, Becca offers this book, showing parents how to help their child reach his/her full potential, and love every minute of it! Power to the Aspies is a tremendously informative read for anyone interested in human behavior. The conversational writing style is easy to read and engaging. Each chapter helps one understand an aspect of Aspergers and shares helpful advice. This book is loaded with compassion and practical help.
