    Not Very Helpful For Me

    Not wanting to be overly critical, but this particular book was not very helpful to me. There weren't any really practical tips to help get you through the day which is what I was looking for. Not a bad book, but not what I was looking for. Also, it's worth mentioning that some of the generalizations made regarding children with HFA or Asperger's weren't accurate. You can't make broad generalizations about an entire group of people who are all different and expect to be right. All people on the sectrum are still people and are all going to be very different from one another.
