"Peter Vermeulen brings a truly refreshing perspective to autism and thus sheds new light on our still blurry vision of this perennially fascinating condition. His wonderfully embracing concept of 'context blindness' provides a powerful explanation of the varied features of autism spectrum disorders. But Vermeulen does more than presenting theory and explaining symptoms. His distinctive point of view and his extensive experience with people with autism of all ages and abilities, which shines through this book, enables him to distill immensely valuable practical advice. By illuminating examples, he shows that it is possible to create an autism-friendly environment and that it is beneficial for everybody to make people more sensitive to the context." -- Uta Frith, world expert on autism, leading developmental psychologist, and professor, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience and Department of Psychology, University College, London
