Handler, the director of home and school consultation at May Institute; Paula Kluth, a consultant, teacher, author, and advocate on the topic of autism spectrum disorders; and Stephen Shore, author of Understanding Autism for Dummies and Beyond the Wall: Personal Experiences with Autism and Asperger Syndrome.
