I would strongly recommend purchasing this as in book form listening to it on audible is is well narrated but too many web addresses and things you need to make a note of obscures the enjoyment of the listen. Having lived autism for 8 years now I don't think I have learnt much from this book. the author has got it right by referring to experienced described by individuals on the spectrum. what happens later on though, is that the practical approaches are very geared towards verbal autism and leaves little room for the spectrum approach. Also she is a little fixated on routine and this can be great for some but as my husband says (being on the spectrum also) routine is comfortable but it creates a prison and he wishes that someone would teach him how to deal with stuff without creating ridgid routines. this is what we are doing with our son and for him it works wonderfully. it is about pushing gently and kindly and knowing when to make the next move. I other words use this book as it is good, but make adaptions and don't assume that even the "essentials" are essential to you child. Happy autism journey ! :-)

what a fantastic narrator and a good story too. The ending suggests a part 2 but that is fine.

This is like a Mills and Boon novel !

What was most disappointing about Diana Gabaldon’s story?

It is an interesting concept but totally ruined by the main characters relationship with Jamie. It is utterly boring and really annoying. She starts off as a strong character and then gradually disintegrates into a teenage girl. YAWN

Any additional comments?

the narrator is good but the story terrible.
