In the dark early days of a diagnoses it gave us clarity, information & hope!! Every family with a child on the spectrum should have a copy!!
Perfect way to work through the maze that comes with an autism/Asperger's diagnosis. Lots of great stories but, more importantly, fantastic information and useful advice
I found this book to be very informative as we are going down the diagnosing road and it helps to hear other stories similar to yours and how to help your child. Also where to get help etc
