Voices from the Spectrum
is a symphony of rich density thanks to the book’s contributors who graciously share their myriad of perspectives, quests, struggles, hopes, and thoughts on life mingled with autism spectrum disorders. At times easy to read and at times the kind of reading that leaves lumps in the throat and thuds in the heart, Voices from the Spectrum is always honest and genuine. I whole-heartedly recommend it. — Liane Holliday Willey, Ed.D., Author of Pretending to be Normal

Parents will enjoy watching this interview to help their understanding of the nature of autism, the effects of having an autistic child in the family, and how to achieve a positive attitude towards their son or daughter. The information is particularly important for parents of recently diagnosed children. –Tony Attwood, internationally known author and presenter. Look on Amazon.
“Writing with the wisdom of a mental health professional and the compassion of a loving father, Dr. Naseef has given us a book that will instruct and inspire us all.” (Harold Kushner, When Bad Things Happen to Good People
This is perhaps the most honest book I have ever read on the grieving process of parents struggling to accept and raise a child with special needs. By sharing his own story and those of other parents he has interviewed and worked with, Dr. Naseef discusses why this process is so hard and what parents can do to survive the process and come out on the other side. But perhaps Dr. Naseef’s most valuable contribution is his message for fathers. Fathers very rarely fit comfortably into the role of fathering a child with special needs and Dr. Naseef’s unique qualifications as both a father and a psychologist have given him rare insights to help other Dads facing this challenge. This may not be an “easy read”, but if you’re a parent struggling with your emotional responses to your child — it is definitely a “must read”. (Lisa R. Simmons) Look inside on Amazon.
