Here some reviews:  This reads like a best friend's guide to autism. Elley's honesty, warmth, and positive outlook shine through making this a truly readable, relatable and hopeful book. Between the lines there is a wealth of useful information, understanding and valuable signposts to further reading. An especially great read for those new to autism. I highly recommend this book! Author: Adele Devine, Special Needs Teacher and Co-Founder of SEN Assist autism software Bright, witty, and upbeat, Debby Elley's book is a heartfelt plea for people to understand the world as those with autism see it, backed up by lots of practical examples of how to do it. As entertaining to read as it is thought-provoking.

In 2006 her boys were diagnosed with autism and in 2018 Debby's first book was published.
