Kathryn J, mother of a daughter with AS Oct 26, 2004
I wish I had had this book when my daughter was younger and we were struggling to understand her challenges! As we learned more about Asperger's Syndrome and the difficulties my daughter would experience, we stumbled through ways to process her emotions and tried to do our best. With "Let's Talk Emotions" we now have a comprehensive guide to not only understand our daughter's struggles, but also her point of view. We can see more clearly how she processes emotions and, most importantly, we have the tools we need to assist and teach her. Now we can see the "light at the end of the tunnel". As we have used the processes, exercises & information in "Let's Talk Emotions", we have seen remarkable growth in our daughter's abilities. We will always owe a debt to Ms. Cardon for the clarity & understanding she has brought to our daughter's life and to ours!!
