What people are saying about The Picture Cookbook: No-Cook Recipes for the Special Chef:
"The Picture Cookbook is a wonderful idea! By the time we are parents, our world is so full of words that we use them for everything, and forget how to 'teach' nonverbal, low-verbal or even deaf children without using words! These recipes — written with pictures instead of words — are a startlingly simple solution, which allow developmentally different children to achieve greater independence, build self-esteem and to contribute meaningfully to the family unit."
— Dr. E. Jean Gibson, MD, FRCPC; Child Neurologist
"This is truly first class work ... This book significantly adds to the medical tools and resources to help autistic children become more functional with activities of daily living."
— Dr. Lancelot Patrick, MD, FRCPC
"This beautiful cookbook fills a gap by providing easy to follow visual paths for individuals with special needs. It supports the chef's independence by breaking down steps and presenting them using pictures appropriate for all ages. I highly recommend The Picture Cookbook ..."
