A new reference book about autism offers advocacy tips for parents and advice for educators about crafting autism-specific lesson plans, say the book's co-authors, Paula Kluth, a well-known author and expert on autism, and John Shouse, an autism advocate whose child has the disorder. "We envisioned that this would get dog-eared and covered with Post-It notes. We hope that people would use it over and over," Shouse said of the book, called "The Autism Checklist: A Practical Reference for Parents and Teachers."
