I help maintain a lending library for a local support group. Either the boy or girl book would be a great addition for many, many local families.

QUOTE OF YEAR!! Both mom and dad will learn [about] menstrual pads. Hallelujah!! Watch out, beloved, there's proof that it isn't just "my area" anymore!
At first, I was thinking to myself, oh great, another book that will make me cry, make me angry, not apply to my kid or just rehash what I already know. And then I read the Amazon description... (and was excited to see Kim's book under "Frequently Bought Together"). I want a girl's copy!

I have an almost 7 year old son with autism. He's non-verbal and I can use ANY tips! Thanks!

I love Cutting-Edge Therapies for Autism 2010-2011. In fact, I loved it so much I carried around with me all over town, to my son's therapy and appts. Sometimes I'd read it outloud to other autism parents while waiting for our kids. I have misplaced it now and only hope that whoever has it is using the great info in it. I have to assume the new books will be just as good.

Now venturing into the scary boy hormone area - and not ashamed to say I'm a little freaked out! Would love a copy - thank you for your generosity Mr. Lyons!

My 17 year old daughter is finally coming to grips with the fact that she has "autism." I have tried to explain to her that autism is a part of her, but not all of her. We drew a circle and broke it into pieces to show her how much of her life is NOT autism and that the more she heals, the smaller the "autism" piece of the pie gets. This has been a very long journey and it ain't over yet. With her growing and greater awareness, sometimes this is harder than when she was small and lived in her own invisible box. Any help would be greatly appreciated - Girl version preferred. Any advice beyond the book would be cheerfully received!
