6 Thoughts

  1. Excellent! I have friends who walk through family life with ASD every single day.
    Love the fresh spitit of chapter 1. Literally refreshing!!

  2. I have a teen on the autism spectrum/aspergers. I will read this book. The author writes in an intelligent, witty way. It seems to be a fun read with a lot of anecdotes and information that will resonate in my family’s experience as well as, many others. Kudos.

  3. I love the sentence “people expect me to behave in the same way as them”. This has and is the biggest challenge that my ASC child struggles with and what I have struggled to understand myself but the more I learn the better I understand. I will be ordering your book after reading the first chapter and I look forward to seeing more positive things within my amazing son.

  4. My son is aspergers. I’m still struggling to get him back to inclusive education. There is no specific school that does it where are stay. He academically bright only the social part which has toned down a lot. I hope this book will help me to know more about my son. But also wish South African public schools can accept them in their schools not only special schools. I tried to go to different schools and districts don’t think they care or want to know my frustrations. My son asks me every now and then when is he going to Grade five because he is doing the Grade 3 work. Even teachers can see that he in way advanced.
