This book is good for parents too. They can learn how to ensure their child's success. I can give a short formula: don't see them as broken but just like any other kid with their own specific issues, support their interests, treat them equally with everyone else. See their potential and encourage them to use their gifts. Fight off any injustice coming their way and teach them to advocate for themselves. They ARE equal with everyone else and no one has a right to say otherwise.
I am really tired of the "pathologizing" trend. Everyone has his/her own specific issues. Having difficulties doesn't mean we should stop living our lives. We should just learn to work with them. And being "in your own world" is an advantage here. It means you can't hear others say that you can't. It's what they always say, all those losers who are jealous that someone is actually doing something and couldn't be bothered to move themselves a bit.
Do what you love and make your living of it! I send everyone hugs and hope you are using your gifts and enjoy life as it's supposed to be. We are uniquely gifted. We can't throw that away.
Recommended for people who have autism, their friends and families, coworkers, and anyone that wants to understand them better and help them when possible.
