The Change the Changeable Toolkit is packed with dozens of real-life examples and practical ideas for making a significant impact on the functioning and quality of life of people with autism by following one simple, easy-to-implement strategy: Change the changeable. The toolkit helps us recognize factors we cannot control or change and factors that are inherent in autism. We also learn of the myriad factors we can, indeed, manage, allowing us to make small changes in logistics or approach or responses, changes that make a real difference in daily life.

The Change the Changeable Toolkit includes a six-part audio discussion and a workbook with these topics:

Chapter 1: Framework for dealing with issues. Recognize our choices for dealing with issues related to autism, and take a look at proactive steps for dealing with various issue.
