What an amazing lady

Temple Grandin in an amazing lady with a perspective of an autistic person who can give others not on the Spectrum ideas of how better to assist their family members who are on the Spectrum! Her passion is obvious and her information is very detailed and specific, sometimes it's hard to follow, but the ideas are so totally worth learning!!! I've got so many ideas for my son's upcoming IPP, i can't wait to share and see what the team has to say about my new ideas! Thank you.

Eye-opener.

It was like finding the final piece to a puzzle I've been trying to solve my entire life.

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.
