The most impressing aspect of this guide is that it attempts to answer some of the most frequently asked questions regarding the education of children and adolescents with Asperger's Disorder. Detailed guidelines for educational assessment follow a general introduction. The following two chapters address both the academic and behavioral needs of this special population. Preparation of the individual for the adult life, transition issues and the question of independent living are all discussed in detail. The educational perspective is broadened by many illustrative case examples.
