Top critical review
on 20 February 2014
It's worth pointing out that this isn't a guide or help book. It's one woman's account of her experiences with a young daughter who has been diagnosed with ASD. As such, there were was much in it that I could compare to my own experience with my daughter. There were parts that made me smile as they were so familiar to me.
However, as a previous reviewer has pointed out - it is very American, and so the advice contained in it is of less use to people in the UK. I get the impression that it's a few years old at this point and knowledge & acceptance of ASD is much greater now.
For me personally, I found it a little sugary too - I dislike the 'girls = pink' equation and have far less reliance on the power of prayer and God when it comes to helping your Aspergers daughter.
Still, it's an easy read and written in a genuine way.
