This is a must read for parents of an AS child. It gives great insight into the thinking and behavior of these children. It also gives important information regarding educational challenges and solutions. Every AS child is different, but this book is an encouraging look at the journey of this family.

My son is not as severe as the boy in this book, but I now have a great hope for his future, and I have some new direction in helping him succeed in life.
