's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: kindle

Having read several books on this subject, mainly in order to help develop some coping strategies for my daughter who has Semantic Pragmatic Disorder, I found this account more helpful than most.

Whilst being very personal, and I can only imagine how difficult that was, the detail was sequenced well, clear and easy to read. I especially liked the "Asperger's Syndrome Primary and Secondary Features" table which is concise and relevant. The section on Autistic Burnout was enlightening and I think schools and HR departments everywhere should read and understand this. Our own term at home for this is "meltdown", and the consequences of not dealing with it early enough are painful and significant.

This book, will not only help those diagnosed with Asperger's, but spouses, parents, care givers and employers too
