Good for older children with a classically autistic sibling but....
on 29 December 2011
..... not for explaining the quirks of a sibling with Asperger's to a child under ten. I bought this book thinking it would be great for such a purpose but the tone, explanations and descriptions seem to relate to classic autism and explaining the problems it causes to a child aged (approx) 12-16. I must admit, I only really flicked through this book as it was apparent pretty quickly it was not what I was looking for. If you are in the position I have described as my take on who it is aimed for and what it covers, it would be a really useful book to have to hand. However, it did not seem to be appropriate for an insight into the world and logic of an AS child so I had no choice but to return it. Still seeking the elusive book with the right answers. For me, it wasn't this one.
