'If you need help in deciding if you should homeschool your child with Asperger Syndrome, or if you just need some help getting started, this book could be a good starting point.'- Practical Homeschooling'An excellent book overall that takes a clear look at what it means to live and deal with an Asperger's child throughout the `school age' years. Family histories lend weight to the theoretical methods suggested and ideas for home educating these special children and teenagers are clearly stated.
