About the Author

Bill Nason, MS, LLP, runs the Autism Discussion Page on Facebook which has 40,000 likes to date. He is a mental health professional with over 30 years' experience in the field of developmental disabilities, specializing in individuals with multiple severe behavior challenges. He currently works as supervisor of consultant services for a community behavioral health agency in Flint Michigan, USA, and contracts with Oakland University's Center for Autism to run sports programs for children with autism.


Many of us count among the 56,000 who have benefitted from Bill Nason's advice from his Autism Discussion Page on Facebook. Now Bill has shared his accumulated insights into autism in a comprehensive manual that translates autism--for the neurotypical community of teachers, parents and service providers--but also for those of us looking to enhance our own self-awareness of the inner workings of autism strategies and techniques. If you only buy two books this year, make them the Autism Discussion Page green and blue books!

Bill's work has given me so much insight to why my son acts the way he does. I have read many books, articles and magazines, and I have seen many professionals, but this is by far the best source of information out there.
*Carey Gazella-Rosas, parent of a child with autism (from the Autism Discussion Page on Facebook)*

As an occupational therapist with over 30 years of experience, I have found Bill Nason's spectrum-spanning insights to be sensitive, intuitive, realistic, and applicable for a wide variety of needs and situations. He truly understands and appreciates the subtleties of autism.
*Marcia Hawley Bakemeyer, occupational therapist (from the Autism Discussion Page on Facebook)*
