    Very informative. I highly recommend reading this book if you are the parent/grandparent of a child on the Autism spectrum

    I checked this book out of our local library a couple of years ago, before my son was diagnosed. The DSM-IV guide with signs and symptoms was very useful. I recently decided I wanted to keep the book on hand. My son is constantly changing. Sometimes we go forward, sometimes back. The book includes some very useful ideas on treatments, and ways to keep your sanity :o' I consider it a must read for anyone with a loved one on the Autism spectrum, or suspects someone is on the spectrum. The picture of Autism is not just a child that doesn't speak, rocks, and spins. Granted some do, many do some of the time, but no two children with Autism are the same.

    Readable and Informative

    Dr. Ozonoff and colleagues have achieved the perfect balance between providing information which is understandable to parents yet contains the most current information available to professionals in the field. Increasing awareness about Asperger's Disorder is leading more parents, educators and mental health professionals to consider the possibility of Asperger's Disorder as the explanation for the constellation of social difficulties, odd communication styles and unusual interests which some individuals struggle with. As they consider this diagnosis, it is extremely important to realize that there remains a considerable amount of variation in the way leaders in the field conceptualize Asperger's. After a thorough discussion of the issues relating to diagnosis, the authors go on to discuss ways to intervene to help individuals with Asperger's. This is the best reference on this topic available today.

    Makes it all clear for parents and grandparents

    This book puts everything into perspective in a clear, understandable way. It helped me understand more why my son has some behaviors and really helped me to be able to recognize when my son is in overload in a situation. I was able to relate many situations to what my son does and get some suggestions on how to deal with it. My dad also read it to help him understand his grandson and he is thankful I shared it. Easy to read, easy to understand, keep a pen handy to take notes for yourself in the margins.
