  • Must Read for the Aspies Mom

    If you have a young Aspie girl in your life it is a must read. It is a great reference guide for all the subjects and approaches to life with great insight to this mysterious, misunderstood syndrome. I am going to keep it on hand and reread subjects as they come into play for my wonderful teenager.
