Customer Review: Amazon Customer - I love this book. I had it already for a few years and like with Asperger Syndrome and Difficult Moments and also Asperger Syndrome and Adolescence Practical Solutions for School Success books I go back to them pretty often to look for strategies (since it has tons of them!). This book brings the basics for educating children with Asperger or High Functioning autism. So if you don't find the specific strategy, the explanations are so clear that makes it very easy for you to come up with one. Great for parents and teachers!!

Customer Review: M. Romano - I am a classroom teacher (third grade) and a graduate student researching Asperger's. I have been looking for a guide for the classroom teacher that fully incorporates all of the needed information to help these kids succeed in the classroom - I FOUND IT!! - This book is just the best - it is written in language easy to relate to as a teacher. It is in-depth -covering all areas of concern - including classroom and curriculum accomodations, yet brief enough to read in a week or so. I will keep it on my desk as a "go to" book. If you are teaching a child with AS - you need this book.

Customer Review: Tinker - I had amassed quite a library of books about Aspergers, each volume containing some useful information, but none which I'd recommend unreservedly. And none which I'd ask an already swamped teacher or principal to read cover to cover. Wary of making another such purchase,I asked our local library to buy Ms. Moore's book. I've read and now renewed it while I wait for my copy, and the copy I'm purchasing for our school. Ms. Moore's approach to problem solving provides an accessible way for parents and teachers to work as a team on behalf of the child with Aspergers. The sample charts for organizational and behavioral direction are straightforward enough to implement both at home and at school. I appreciate that the tone of this book is neither dispairing nor self-serving in describing Ms. Moore's own child's challenges nor is it filled with the technical jargon that often makes educators' books seem too daunting for parents. In offering "Practial Solutions," the author offers hope for families and teachers who are navigating the challenging waters of Aspergers.
