4.0 out of 5 stars A useful overview, 6 Mar. 2007
The opening chapters of this book and the list of "Ten Things Every Child With Autism Wishes You Knew" give a useful overview and might be very helpful to newcomers to autism, or to those whose child has recently been diagnosed. The book focuses on explaining the reasons for various behaviours and as such gives a very useful insight into autism. I felt the book was limited by the author's experience of her own child. The many references to the author's son and his achievments, and her proudest moments, could be daunting for any parent of a child with autism and very severe language and communication difficulty and associated learning difficulty. The reality of day to day achievements for such parents might be very different from those portrayed in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just right!, 9 May 2006
ones which have a lot of episodes can go on for up to two hours! I actually look for DVDs which have only five or six episodes. He won't have anything to do with interactive games - they are not important to every child. I think the DVD seems to have a good mix of old and new characters. I'm not keen on the songs which appear on the newer Thomas DVDs, but the kids seem to like them. Also, it appears to me that the newer DVDs seem to use more computer graphics than the old episodes which appeared to be made entirely with models - to me this is part of their charm - but the kids seem quite oblivious to such things!
