Very disappointing

Almost entirely talks about children and content is repeated throughout. Gave up and got refund.

Absolutely wonderful and insightful

Although I'm in UK and I chuckled at the bit on driving practice, this book has helped me understand my son a lot better. Mother of a now 34 year old with ASD though, I am still at a loss how to encourage him to not use his autism as an excuse and he is entrenched in reclusivity. Parents are not the people always to help and I fear for when I am no longer around. In the UK we need more employment awareness and flexibility.
