This book covers many topics with which students on the autism spectrum have trouble. Chapters include Your Feelings and Emotions; Teachers and Asking for Help; Friends,Classmates and the Other Kids; Bullies and Mean Kids; and Healthy Habits. Each chapter is further divided into what to expect in situations and how to effectively deal with them. Sometimes, there are flow charts and model conversations, which I found helpful. This was a very text-dense book, and sometimes the way the information ...more

I got this book on recommendation from my son's doctor. My son is 13 and has Aspergers Syndrome.

I thought it was interesting how this guide was written for the audience of young people with an autistic-spectrum disorder. It's sort of a "how-to guide" on how to act, or react. There are chapters on individual situations, like conversation starters. As a teacher, I might even adapt some of this content for socioemotional learning activities for primary, or counseling.

This book has interesting ideas for helping a child with Aspergers navigate life. Has concrete examples for how to set goals and how to do things.

Would recommend this book to others.
