When I read this book with my child, it was evident that a great sense of relief came over him, as he suffers with some of the symtoms of Asperger's. He immediately felt less alone. We discussed the issues that he faces, as well as those that do not affect him. The book was truly a great find. Upon reading it, both my child and husband responded, "Where did you get this book?" My child was happy and relieved to share the title with his teacher, who also found it very helpful. It is also an excellent source to share with friends, as it will help them understand what causes the particular uniquenesses that Asperger's can bring to the child. I would highly recommend it as an excellent starting point for any child suffering with symptoms of Asperger's.
