How to care for someone with Autism

I have two kids with autism, both can fuction in society, but one has learning disabilities and the other is highly intelligent, but lacks social skills. Both of them had different needs, and both affected my wife and I differently. This book is a great guide for someone with a family like ours. The nurse who wrote this text must have worked with a ton of people with autism, as she very clearly speaks from experience. She has learned from the time she has spent among people wit autism, and her advice is solid. I really wish we had this book 15 years ago.

Clinger narrates in his top form as usual. He is clear and crisp in his pronunciation, and he makes all of Jane's points.
