Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I was riveted from the moment I started this book until I put it down at the last page. …
 
This book is going to be both lighthouse and life raft for parents, giving them something to aim for and the way to get there. Parents of an AS child (whether girl or boy) who are trying to procure a diagnosis or who have a diagnosis but don’t know what to do next, Ms. Clark has provided you with a map. …
 
Thanks to books like this and the parents and professionals who take the time to read them, many more little Aspergirls will have the future they deserve."
 
From the Foreword by Rudy Simone, Asperger's self-advocate and author of Aspergirls and Asperger's on the Job
