I am a therapist and used this book with a 10 year old with Asperger's. I really liked the idea and the book, which is beautifully made and printed, and the accompanying CD, but he didn't really care for it. I used several stories and also made a couple customized stories based on her instructions, but while the parent and I liked the stories they weren't much of a hit with this little one either. We then used Jed Baker's picture social skills books, and he loved those. Maybe this approach would work with another child, but for now I am sticking with Jed Baker. I think in the future I may pull from either one depending on the child or skill at hand.
