I did not get much out of this for my two high IQ Auties. It really focuses on the more severe symptoms of lower-functioning autism. But it is SOOOOOO good... Too bad I can't use much of it. I wish folks wouldn't lump these diagnoses together. So different. Different needs and symptoms. Still, this would be an INCREDIBLE resource for autistic kids.

One of the reasons I liked this book was that we received mixed input from friends and family regarding our son's diagnosis, especially since he was 4.5. This book indicated many examples of habits and behaviors that gave my husband and I 'ah-ha!' moments and it helped us feel less powerless to help our son. we knew that traditional ways of dealing with certain things did not work with our son and this book helped point out things that did.

Hands down, the VERY best ASD resource book I've come across. Gives tons of practical, doable, doesn't-take-a-genius-to-figure-out solutions that instantly improve the lives of your child/student with an ASD. I wish someone would have given me this book at the very beginning of our family's journey.

I have been researching books on Asperger's Syndrome due to a recent diagnosis within my family. There are so many books out there and it is so easy to think you can read them all - but if you have an Asperger's Syndrome child in your home - you do not have enough time to read a magazine - forget trying to read 30 or more books.

This book is laid out like a How-to book. The chapters are split up into tiny bits and the contents page is detailed so you can go right to the issue you really want to read about - at the moment! I had the paperback version from the library, but it is huge and heavy. I always have my Kindle available (a great distraction tool!) so I bought the Kindle version. I love it! Look it over with the Look Inside feature - you will see why I bought it...maybe you will buy it too! PS. This author has other books available - and she has not disappointed me in any of them!

I think everyone should read this book so that they can understand the struggles that parents and children face. It has great ideas for teaching children with these conditions but a lot of the tips apply to people who deal with a child who has ADD or ADHD or just doesn't have the desire to learn. It's a big book but it doesn't take as long to read it as you would think.

I am a teacher of students with severe Autism. I have recommended this book to everyone I work with, and my student's parents. It explains many of the main areas affected by Autism, and gives dozens of ideas of how to target this area. Although only one chapter is dedicated to the education of students with Autism, I find many skills to target in my daily lessons from all the other chapters.

This is the best book on working with children with autism I have purchased. I have purchased several. The book is easy to read, filled with great ideas. I loaned it to the teacher next door, she kept it for a weekend then ordered her own. Truly worth having. It won't sit on the shelf.
