Autism may be an indidivual’s diagnosis, but it’s experienced by the whole family. That’s the approach that Michele Portlock takes when she works with her own clients, and that’s the approach she’s taken in her own life as she’s worked with her children who have autism. She straddles both worlds, and she is full of beautiful advice for how parents and professionals can work together.
