    I would be personally interested in Dr Grandin’s “The Way I See It.” She has so many insights to offer those of us struggling with the “why” of behaviors in our children and she delivers it firsthand. I believe it would be an invaluable resource in helping my 8 year old daughter. Maybe there’s even something that touches upon dealing with the hormone changes that will soon be coming! 🙂

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    I would live either The Way I See It or Different Not Less by Temple Grandin.

    This request is for my daughter, not me. My son is almost 17, and has Asperger’s. We’ve been through a lot with him.

    And now my daughter and her family are starting their own journey with our grandson. He’ll be 7 in July, and is getting evaluated for autism next week.

    I think she’d like the book on Toilet Training, as he is still having accidents at home and at school.

    I’ll always be just a phone call away when she needs information or support, but I never had to deal with the toilet training problems she’s experiencing.

    I follow Special Happens through Google Reader.

    Thank you!
