My son is 8yrs. old and really really into Star Wars. He lives for video games, Martial arts or ninja movies and Super Hero Movies.

He amazes me at the things he says that are so to the point its scary. I am still working out how to deal with his Melt downs in public. But in school, things are better.

He just recently worked out with his teacher, that if he does need to have "quiet time" he lets her know first before he has a full out tantrum. She rewarded him with a Star Wars Shirt and he is SO Excited.

I'm so happy that his school (public) is doing their best to understand his Aspergers.

We still have a long way to go, but thanks to Yoda, we will get there.

Book Reviews

I'm so tickled that authors have been contacting me and asking me to review their new books for them!

Please contact me if you'd like me to review yours. :)

Fiction, Non-fiction, Auto-Biographies, Instructional books, etc., I'm interested in them all. :)

For as much time as I spend researching Asperger's Syndrome this website should have thousands of pages but because my son has Asperger's Syndrome I find that the things I want to work on very often are not the things that I have to work on so I'm still not able to spend as much time on it as I'd like to.

As he heads into adulthood (he turned 20 on Dec 13 and yep I need to update some areas of the website where it has his age) I'm finding that I have even less time on my hands as I spend more time trying to master the puzzle of how to help him transition into "life after high school".

That's where Autism Tomorrow: The Complete Guide To Help Your Child Thrive In The Real World comes in.

It's a guide to help your kids after high school. You'll find parts of the book will be applicable and some won't depending on your child's current age. Although the title implies "Autism after high school" there is still quite a bit in there about what to do help prepare your child for "real life".

It's a great book!
