Asperger Syndrome and Sensory Issues is of great value not only to special education teachers but every teacher. In addition, pediatricians and family physicians will gain insight into the issues faced by patients, their families and teachers. -- Paul A. Bryne, M.D., clinical professor of pediatrics, Medical College of Ohio The "Sensory Gang" helps the reader to easily track the different components of sensory input and gain valuable insights on matching an appropriate intervention to the specific sensory issue. As one who has personal experience with some of these sensory issues and who also works with people having these problems, I highly recommend this text to anyone interested in learning more about understanding and helping people with Asperger Syndrome. -- Stephen M. Shore, MA, doctoral student in special education with a concentration in autism at Boston University

The book describes 'relationships' in candid AS terms. There is a huge amount here for researchers and professionals to dwell on. However, the book is not a guidebook for managing relationships better (or even getting into them) and a crucial metacommentary on events in the book is largely absent.
Overall I enjoyed this book. Most readers will find the latter half of the book dealing with college and adult life more revealing than the first half, in my opinion. The book presents AS in sharp tones on occasion. It is a 'warts and all' narrative, but I highly recommend reading it.
I did feel it was helpful in many respects. It is good to get the voice of a man who has intimate, personal knowledge of a/A and explaining some of the sensory issues that accompany this neurobiological condition. Since people on the a/A spectrum are expected to make concessions to the NT world just to get along socially, it is nice to have books like this that provide explanations of what people with autism contend with. The world is for everyone and not just for the NT population. Shore does a good job of encouraging NT and a/A to meet one another halfway. This is about cooperation.
