Great Book. Now have multiple copies to share! Apr 21, 2008
Book is full of wonderful information and advise. There is lots of medical information in addition to great examples on how to implement the recommendations. I liked it so much, I bought a copy for my son's teacher. She writes notes in it and it will be passed onto his teacher for next year.

I purchased this book for my son's last two teachers and they said it helped them a lot. I will buy it again for his next teacher!

This book is a great primer for parents and staff just learning about Asperger Syndrome. It was too basic for me as a professional who works with Asperger's Syndrome. It may be a good resource for professionals to give to parents to help them work with the schools.
Great resource for teachers! Apr 11, 2007
I have recommended to our entire elementary school staff to read this book and take to heart the simple yet meaningful adaptations teachers can make to help these special ed. students feel more successful in the school setting. This book will help the general education teacher to know more about Asperger Syndrome and understand students with this syndrome. Very specific information--very helpful!!
Outstanding Resource Mar 8, 2007
I am a classroom teacher (third grade) and a graduate student researching Asperger's. I have been looking for a guide for the classrom teacher that fully incorporates all of the needed information to help these kids succeed in the classroom - I FOUND IT!! - This book is just the best - it is written in language easy to relate to as a teacher. It is in-depth -covering all areas of concern - including classroom and curriculum accomodations, yet brief enough to read in a week or so. I will keep it on my desk as a "go to" book. If you are teaching a child with AS - you need this book.
