Packed with inspiring ideas and tips that can be used with any curriculum and on any budget, Homeschooling the Child with Asperger Syndrome explains how to design a varied study programme built around the child’s own interests, making use of simple material as well as computers and on-line resources.

An excellent book overall that takes a clear look at what it means to live and deal with an Asperger’s child throughout the `school age’ years. Family histories lend weight to the theoretical methods suggested and ideas for home educating these special children and teenagers are clearly stated. Of real use are the websites and games giving activities that are particularly suited to Aspergers children. The ideas and suggestions are excellent. A book I would recommend for its straight forward approach and ideas.
