KPC Very nice book! I also read it and it definitely gives you a different perspective of Aspergers and if you‘re not familiar with Aspergers it teaches you how to interact with people who are in the spectrum. 7mo
Kayladvazquez This looks like a good book. I would love to read it and get to know more about Aspergers before I become a teacher in the school district. I like the link you added giving more information on the author. The link really gave me a sense of understanding on why she wrote the book. 7mo
Ivanita08 I heard amazing comments about this book. I didn‘t have the opportunity to read it yet, but it‘s definitely on my to-do list! Great pick. 7mo
