Index.

'Sex, Drugs and Asperger's Syndrome is one of my favorite books this year. Luke Jackson provides the reader with an in-depth understanding of many relevant issues regarding both Asperger's Syndrome as well as autism in general. This includes employment, bullying, sexuality, relationships, and much more. The autism community and society as a whole will benefit greatly from these much needed discussions.'


- Stephen M. Edelson, Ph.D., Executive Director, Autism Research Institute (autism.com), San Diego, California


 


'With wisdom beyond his years and the mastery of an expressionist artist, Luke guides the reader through the rocky shoals of successful transition from adolescence to adulthood as a person on the autism spectrum. A straightforward, honest must read for anyone seeking greater understanding of the coming of age of the human soul, autistic or otherwise.'


- Stephen Mark Shore, Ed.D., Clinical Assistant Professor of Special Education at Adelphi University
