– Beyond Sensory Turmoil and Pain in Autism

Published by Pavilion Publishing, this book provides new insights into autism from expert, Phoebe Caldwell, who has been a leader in this area for fifty years. The Anger Box is one of Phoebe Caldwell’s best-selling books which moved attention away from the symptoms of autism towards understanding and alleviating sensory overload experiences for autistic people.

The Good Box brings ideas from The Anger Box and Hall of Mirrors, Shards of Clarity, another best-seller of Phoebe’s with a decade of her updated autism research. As Phoebe’s latest book title suggests, it reflects the move from distress in autism to more positive and inclusive insights and acceptance of autism.


The Good Box is for Health and social care professionals who work with children and adults on the autism spectrum; parents with autistic children and anyone with a general interest in the subject and individuals who are on the autism spectrum themselves.


Phoebe Caldwell DSc is a Responsive Communication Practitioner who has pioneered the development of support for people on the autistic spectrum for almost fifty years, opening channels of communication and emotional engagement for thousands of individuals who had previously experienced social and emotional isolation. Internationally, Phoebe collaborates with professionals globally including Australia, the Netherlands, Denmark and Canada. Phoebe’s contribution was recognised when she won The Times/Sternberg Award, which celebrates outstanding contributions of people to their community and to public life made after their 70th birthday.
