Silver Award Winner in the 2005 ForeWord Book of the Year Awards! Born with autism, both authors now famously live successful social lives. But their paths were very different. Temple's logical mind controlled her social behavior. She interacted with many adults and other children, experiencing varied social situations. Logic informed her decision to obey social rules and avoid unpleasant consequences. Sean's emotions controlled his social behavior. Baffled by social rules, isolated and friendless, he made up his own, and applied them to others. When they inevitably broke his rules, he felt worthless and unloved. Both Temple and Sean ultimately came to terms with the social world and found their places in it. Whether you are a person with autism, a caregiver in the autism community, or just someone interested in an "outsider" view of society, their powerful stories will enthrall and enlighten you.

“This is a well organized and informative book. Not only does the author try and define Asperger’s Syndrome, or high-functioning autism, she also details signs of the condition and supports these with anecdotal observation. This book is certainly a must for any teacher who feels the either want to know more about this condition in a clear uncluttered way or who feel concern for any child in their class.”
“I think you are in for quite a treat in reading this book and keeping it on hand as a reference. It is well organized. The reader can locate a topic and study it briefly or deeply, according to available time and need. Most importantly for both parents and teachers, this book won’t waste your time. Parents and professionals share a need for practical rather than theoretical advice. This book provides just that. May Rebecca’s book ease your educational burdens as she has done for the fortunate families she has known since her child was diagnosed.”

Instructions is included in the book to enhance the development of appropriate, measurable, and meaningful individualized education plans (IEPs) to incorporate social goals. Lesson plans are included to facilitate the ability to teach these social goals.
