What People say about Alis's Books

"This is a great book for parents (like me) with a daughter on the autistic spectrum. In particular if you are starting to deal with the pre-teen/teenage years! It is a also helpful and affirming read for those who might like to connect their experiences with those of another person on the spectrum."
"There doesn’t seem to be enough words to give this book the true review and praise that it deserves. I fear we’d be here for a very long time if we tried. However, this book is amazing and definitely a must read!"
"After seeing 'The girl with the curly hair' online I realised that she was EXACTLY like my daughter... I bought the book and... every single page resonates... No need to photocopy pages, it was all there... It made sense of an otherwise senseless world."

Alis is now living a more comfortable and fulfilling life and this is only because of the strategies she has devised and succinctly communicated in the e-courses.

Along with our e-courses, we also have a variety of resources for parents such as:

The Curly Hair Project’s resources are endorsed by world’s leading psychologist Professor Tony Attwood.
