This book is very user friendly and provides a detailed explanation of asperberger's and the varied behaviors exressed by individuals on the spectrum. My family is very new to PDD. After 12 years, of parenting a child with difficult behaviors, this book has helped me understand my child better.

As a parent of a child with high functioning autism, I have many books on aspergers and autism on my shelves and in my nook. I have referenced none as often as this one. This book is perfect for anyone who wants real information and not the latest fad diet experiment. It is divided into chunks that are easy to understand and the index is very useful for quickly finding a topic. I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to learn more about aspergers.
