About the Author

“Learning specialist Grossberg (Asperger's Rules, Asperger's Teens; Asperger's and Adulthood) has written a little gem of a book for parents of adolescents and young adults (11–21) on the autism spectrum that should be in every collection… The author's hopeful, nonjudgmental voice urges readers to trust their own instincts and emphasizes the importance of self-care, a topic usually neglected but vital owing to the stressful parenting demands… Highly recommended.” —Library Journal Starred Review
