It includes tips to make daily life less frustrating and more productive, and focuses on the importance of positive routines, coping with social awkwardness and creating stability in daily activities. It explains how to cope with social anxiety through preparation and how to decrease the frequency of meltdowns by providing an escape route to `a safe place' this comprehensive work will open up the opportunity of a fulfilling life for every child.
